Weimar more than makes up for its relatively small size with a wealth of historical, cultural, and architectural attractions. After all, it's known for residents Goethe, Schiller, and Liszt. Between the two world wars, Weimar became the official home of Bauhaus, the most important German design school of its period. Today, you'll find many World Heritage sites in the city center--many of them key parts of the original Bauhaus complex. Few places in Europe can match Weimar's offering of museums. You can see everything from contemporary art to archeological finds from the region's prehistory. In spite of an outstanding public transportation system, you can easily spend your vacation in this compact city moving solely by foot or by bike. To get around the city's many notable sites, consider joining an official guided tour. If you'd rather move about at your own pace, just pick up an inexpensive audio guide at the city's main tourist information office. Plan your visit to Weimar and other destinations in Germany using our Germany trip itinerary maker site.
