Historic Site Tourist Spot
In 1724, Johann August Richter and Gottfried Heinrich Krohne designed the Chateau of Belvedere (Schloss Belvedere) as a pleasure house and summer residence for Duke Ernst August of Saxe-Weimar. In the gardens, updated in the English landscape style in 1811, elegant pavilions flank the chateau's entrance. The plaster-relief interior houses 18th-century porcelain, faïence, paintings, and furniture belonging to the art collections of Weimar. Stroll through the recently restored festive hall and silver salon, and journey back in time to the storied house parties of the mid-18th century. Take in the historical carriage collection and exhibits on hunting and garden culture in the times of Duke August, experiencing life as it was centuries ago. Pick up the audio guide included in the ticket price for more historical information. After your visit, stop at the nearby teashop for refreshments.

  • This could be a nice museum, but at present works are done. The orangerie (and garden) is nice, but the Chateau itself is pretty outdated. It is nice to see, but not really a must see in Weimar.  more »

  • Schloss Belvedere is one of the most beautiful castles in and around Weimar. Especially the gardens and parks around it are absolutely splendid. They become truly magical when being visited in the evening or at night. Visiting this place has been one of the most inspiring moments in my life.
  • Accessible by bike! it is an amazing road! Nice place to visit!
  • On a bicycle, take the path around the castle heading east and connects up to the Ilm river, a great ride.
  • Picturesque and beautiful. Toller Park and great environment. Definitely a worthwhile destination.
