Great pastries on the Square! Try the strudel, people watch on the Square, and take a selfie with Goethe and his friend. Sample the wide variety of cakes and cookies; they have... read more

The “Weimar Haus” is a little private museum. A big Goethe-figure stands in one of the main streets, pointing at the entrance and promoting the museum. Touristified in a way that I normally never would go in there. Well, this time it started to rain and we decided to have a look. Lucky us. What a precious little museum this... More

This attraction setting out the history of Weimar in separate rooms with multi media elements is probably aimed at children. There are "performances" in English. The big snag is that having gone into each room, there is nowhere to sit down which is a real disadvantage if you are getting on in years or just come to the end of... More

If you're coming to Weimar with little kids, visit this for an overview of Weimar's history. But for adults, you can safely skip it.

The museum store carries a lot of reasonably priced souvenir! Once stopped by for some gingko-leavf shaped jewelry.

Who knew that Goethe was alive and well and living as a tour-guide in this funny little museum. He was an excellent guide, leading us through all the happenings of Weimar through the ages. An excellent off-beat museum for all ages.

Really interesting and well thought out museum. Mixture of waxwork figures and overhead audio commentary English and German, depicting the history of Weimar from the dark ages to the 19th century. Goethe is your "host" throughout this 30 minute trip. Enjoyable for adults and kids. Would be good if they extended the history to include the 19th and 20th centuries... More
