Nowadays all attractions make up a great mix of interesting, restored architecture, parks, gardens and numerous cultural monuments which are densely packed together - although the city center was terribly devastated by bomb attacks in World War II.

The history of Weimar Germany is world-famous well. The National Theater was the place, where Germany's first republican constitution was drafted in 1919 - the Weimar Republic.

Another important event was the foundation of Bauhaus school and movement in 1919 by Walter Gropius, who drew as director of Bauhaus school top artists like Feininger, Klee and Kandinsky to Weimar.

Fans of castles will also find famous attractions for their taste - there is Anna Amalia's 18th century Tiefurt Castle surrounded by a nice english-style garden outside the city. But more famous is the lovely Belvedere Castle, that you can easily reach by car or by foot. It is a nice 4 km walk from the city's center through the Goethe park. Then you reach the former hunting palace which is surrounded by a nice park - Belvedere castle belongs to the World Heritage.
