Castle · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Located inside the heritage-listed city castle, Stadtschloss boasts a large collection of paintings dating from the Middle Ages to about 1900. The museum takes up the north, east, and west wings of the castle, originally built as a ducal residence and expanded considerably during its 500-year history. The former ducal collection is organized chronologically and spreads through many of the castle's grand rooms, some of which contain authentic furniture from the Baroque period. On the ground floor, you can explore the works of German masters, as well as a collection of sculptures and crafts, including furniture from the workshop of the renowned cabinetmaker David Roentgen. This floor also displays porcelain figures made by some of Europe's best-known manufacturers. Be sure to explore the second floor, where you can see works by the celebrated Weimar school of painting, an art style popular during the 19th century.

  • The museum was closed and under renovation. The surrounding area was nice and took nice pictures of the exterior and watch tower. The courtyard inside was completely covered up.  more »
  • The gallery is closed for more than three years and contents not rehoused elsewhere in Weimar. What a shame the museum staff have so little regard for their pictures and anyone who wants to see them.  more »
