Highlights in WeimarSummer in Weimar

Barely a week goes by without some festival or exciting event taking place in Weimar. Classical concerts, plays on stage and in the open air and many exhibitions at Weimar's museums. Even more convivial are our markets and fairs


Lyonel Feininger - on the road by bike

The exhibition shows around 40 drawings and prints from the rich Bauhaus collection of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar that deal with Feininger's love of nature, Thuringian villages and churches: Gelmeroda, Mellingen, Lehnstedt and Tröbsdorf.
