Classical Weimar

Weimar between the 18th and 19th centuries became a center of cultural development, art and architecture in Germany. This period particularly flourished during Goethe's life from 1749-1832 and became a hub of development. Several notable personalities like Goethe, Schiller, Christoph Weiland and Johann Gottfried Herder contributed to the development of literature, philosophy and culture during the Classical Period. The architecture and cultural centers that were developed or used during this period include Goethe's Home and Garden House, Wittumspalais, Ettersburg Palace, Ettersburg Park and St. Peter and Paul amongst others. Thanks to the architectural embellishments, Classical Weimar was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998.
