The Klassik Stiftung Weimar manages a large number of research institutes, historical houses, museums, castles and parks. Most of these are located in Weimar city centre; some are also located in the surrounding areas and as far as the borders of the Free State of Thuringia. For Weimar, it is important as a centre of classicism and classical modernity thanks to its connections with Goethe, Schiller, Wieland, Liszt, Nietzsche, van de Velde, Gropius and the duchy of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach.
The Klassik Stiftung Weimar is a unique ensemble of cultural memorial sites. With more than 20 museums, palaces, historic houses, parks as well as literary and art collections, it is one of the largest and most significant cultural institutions in Germany. Eleven of the Klassik Stiftung’s properties are mentioned in UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list as part of »Classical Weimar«. More than 700,000 people visit the Klassik Stiftung’s institutions every year.
With the master plan »Cosmos Weimar« which was drawn up in 2008, the Stiftung has developed a forward-looking concept that will open up the marvellous museum landscape in and around Weimar for visitors. The most important measures are the development of the city palace as the centre of the Klassik Stiftung and the construction of a new bauhaus museum.
The Klassik Stiftung Weimar will open the bauhaus museum weimar for the Bauhaus-Year 2019. In the city where the State Bauhaus was founded, it will represent the early, Weimar phase of the most influential school of art and design of the 20th century.
