Weimar Town Palace
On a tour of the Museum in the Town Palace, art lovers can expect a real treat! In the historic palace rooms with their partly original furnishings, the former art collection of the Grand Dukes is on show, ranging from the Middle Ages to the turn of the century around 1900. The highlights of the thematically divided exhibitions are the Cranach Gallery and works by Caspar David Friedrich, Auguste Rodin and Max Beckmann. The first floor displays sculptures and arts and crafts dating from around 1800, including treasures from the dowry of Maria Pavlovna, the Tsar's daughter. Another section shows works of the Weimar School of Painters.
UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Town Palace complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site entitled "Classic Weimar", which, as unique testimony to the cultural epoch of Weimar Classic, reflects the outstanding role of Weimar as an intellectual centre in the late 18th and early 19th century.
