Holiday rentals Weimar - Germany's city of culture
Weimar, in Thuringia, the green heart of Germany, is one of the country's most culturally significant cities. It has been the home of important Germans ranging from initiator of the Reformation Martin Luther to iconic film star Marlene Dietrich, and now you too can live there when you choose a Weimar holiday rental.
Fans of German literature will enjoy visiting the homes of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller, which are now museums dedicated to the writers. The Bauhaus art school and design movement was founded in Weimar by Walter Gropius, Paul Klee, and Wassily Kandinsky, among others, and the Bauhaus Museum houses an interesting collection. Simply wandering around the historical centre you will see many beautiful and significant buildings, and it's worth seeking out the Stadtschloss, Schloss Belvedere, and the Wittumspalais. Holiday rentals Weimar are great for everybody, because there's simply so much to see and do.
Head to the market to try freshly grilled Thuringian sausages served with mustard, then pick up some fresh ingredients to prepare in the kitchen of your holiday apartment Weimar; Thuringia's fertile fields mean lots of locally produced vegetables, and a general enthusiasm for sausages, roast meats, potato dumplings, and cakes means you certainly won't go hungry on traditional food. If the weather's good, walking or cycling through the Thuringian Forest is a lovely way to spend a day, or visit the nearby cities of Erfurt and Leipzig.
