Event Portal Weimar
In an interactive spatial installation, you have the opportunity to discover seven tour highlights and experience Thuringia in a completely new way. Visible from afar, the exciting new building with a birch bark façade draws attention to the beauty and richness of Thuringia's cultural landscape inside. For an initial period of five years, the Weimar Experience Portal will establish a spatial, formal and thematic link here between the garden monument Park an der Ilm and the buildings of Weimar Classicism.
A viewing platform offers a wonderful view of the park, the Duchess Anna Amalia Library and the City Palace. In the airy interior, floor-to-ceiling video walls with seven short films draw attention to selected tourist destinations in Thuringia. Visually impressive, they introduce the places and stories that the adventure portal bundles into seven thematic tours. The spectrum ranges from places of cultural and social historical importance to literature and residential culture: from the "birth of democracy" in Schwarzburg, where Friedrich Ebert signed the Weimar Constitution at his holiday resort, to the "tamed landscapes" of the Baroque parks and landscape gardens, to the Thuringian Forest, where Goethe wrote a world-famous poem on the Kickelhahn.
