Old books and libraries have an almost magical attraction for us. In Weimar there is a library that you simply have to see. The Duchess Anna Amalia Library is certainly one of the most beautiful libraries in Germany.
We arrive a little outside the old town at a large building with a modern entrance. This is where the traditional Deinhardt brewery is located. Good beer and good food at the Weimar Felsenkeller.
Not far from Weimar is Belvedere Palace, built for Duke Ernst August I, with its beautiful park and orangery with its many exotic plants.
You can feel it immediately when you pass the door of the Arnstadt city brewery: It’s not just the history that clings to the old brick walls of this landmark building. It’s the living tradition that resonates in the air, a homage to the age-old craft of brewing beer that manifests itself in every sip of their unique beer.
The garden gnome is on the UNESCO list, who would have thought it. Yet this figure divides garden owners to this day. Some hate the little men and can’t imagine anything worse in their garden. Others love the gnome and can’t get enough of it.
Looking for craft beer from Erfurt? No problem! The small Erfurt brewery Heimathafen, which produces excellent beer, is located in the train harbor Kulturbahnhof.
