The theater was maintained very well, seats are quite comfortable for a almost 3 hour opera. Little tips, do have a quick coffee/wine break on the theater balcony, looking at the historical square under moonlight, staring at the back of Goethe and Schiller.

It is the most famous point of city center and good for photo shooting and nice place to watch a classic story theater there. During Christmas market they make a ice skating field and you can enjoy beside Goethe and Schiller :)

The theatre itself is closed now for renovations. But you can gaze on the outside, where the Weimar Republic was announced. And go in the lobby. A very, very historic place, with just a sense of place.

There're way more beautiful opera houses in Germany, but in this opera house you'd find more great works by Goethe and Schiller.

A great company and a great theatre. But be careful what you go to hear - some of their productions are "German director-dictatorship" gone mad. We saw a production of Verdi's I Masnadieri which is genuinely the worst production I have ever seen in a...More

We went to see a Verdi opera. It was awesome, fantastic stage performance with great links to our time. The place, the atmosphere, the music, the actors, we all loved it.

Weimar is still a small town of Thuringa, but it offers quite a variety of cultural aspects. Take a day of sunshine and enjoy the Parks, the Museums, the Churches and the Bauhaus, but this places is a must!
