Traditional pyramids and nutcrackers from the Erzgebirge Mountains, glassware from Lauscha, wooden toys from Thuringia: all this and many other surprises are waiting to be discovered. The Weimar Christmas Market will be extended until January 5th - which will offer visitors culinary delicacies and winter wares on the Market Square until after New Year’s.
Art and music lovers will always find plenty to see in Weimar: scores of concerts at historical venues, in palaces and on the lake stage enrich the calendar of events. The Kunstfest Weimar is dedicated to plays. The highlights in July and August are compiled under the title „Weimar Summer“. 2014 will mark the 300th anniversary of Bach’s promotion to the position of concert master by the duke. That same year, his son Carl Philipp Emanuel was born. Both anniversaries are reason enough to celebrate the Bach family with music festivals in 2014: The renowned Thüringer Bachwochen, the Bachfest and the Bach-Biennale will take place.
