Arts & Museums
Housed within the school campus, the Bauhaus Museum exemplifies the nature and quality of art, architecture and sculpture encouraged in the school.
Standing unique with its Neo-Renaissance structure, the Neues Museum of Weimar is home to both permanent as well temporary collections of fine art and contemporary art.
The Goethe-Nationalmuseums is a museum dedicated to one of the greatest poets the world has ever seen, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Goethe's house in Weimar has now been converted into the Goethe-Nationalmuseums where you get to see how he lived and what influenced his literary accomplishments. Though, this museum is hugely popular, limited visitors are allowed so that the place does not get damaged by any means. A famous exhibition held here is 'The Bauhaus comes from Weimar'. For further details, do visit their website.
Weimar is a city steeped in a rich history of literature and music, including but not limited to the incredible contributions of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller. There is also the Bauhaus Museum, which catalogs the artistic and architectural movement which had its foundations here. In spring, the fields bloom with beautiful flowers, and there are innumerable beautiful places for a picnic.
Housed inside the Schloßmuseum is an elaborate collection of medieval art that forms the cultural heritage Kunstsammlung zu Weimar. This collection comprises the 16th Century paintings of Lucas Cranach which are spread across three rooms. The portrait of Albrecht Dürer dates back to 1499 and is the oldest piece of work inside the house. Besides, the ground floor of the museum comprises Russian icons of the 15th Century and sculptures from the Thuringia era. The collection of Dutch paintings on the first floor comprehensively showcases the classicism and romanticism from the late 18th Century to 19th Century. Call the museum to know more about the collection.
The Schlossmuseum im Stadtschloss stocks a vast collection of paintings from all over. What's more interesting is the collection of Dutch artwork, which is equally fascinating as most collections in the house.
Founded in 1904, the Stadtmuseum boasts of its huge amount of collectibles and documents, which throw light on the cultural history of Saalfeld. What will truly interest you in the permanent exhibition section is the city's history and geology. The fascinating art gallery is another major attraction. The museum does organize activities for adults as well as kids, which would simply make your visit an eventful day.
