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.

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!
