  • Impressive building from the inside. Outside rather unspectacular. Historically very interesting. Audio is a must without audio no info  more »
  • Here, the Saxony-Anhalt lie Weimar noble families until the beginning of the 20th century. It is extremely simple and very elaborate coffins in the crypt beneath a classical "Hermitage". Goethe and a probably empty (both plain) coffin Schiller are as well there laid out. And of course Maria Pawlowna... is a key figure of Weimar, which buried in Russian soil under "their" Russian Orthodox Church. Impressive... Exit towards Rudolstadt, parked in the cemetery parking lot, and you walk there... It's worth. Audio guide in the Royal crypt.

  • They have bunny squirrels! #1 must see! Weimar is the best
  • Interesting place with Goethe's and Schiller's coffina and others from the ruling family of Weimar.
  • To see there is the tomb of Goethe and Schiller. There is also a monument griggio forgotten by the German authorities made by an artist of the Bauhaus. You have to try because it is not written anywhere. I knew why my guide said.

  • You should probably look. The cemetery and the Tomb are objectively clear systems and buildings. Partly, there are interesting anecdotes, I want to take here does not anticipate, therefore worth a ' audio guide'. Front of Goethe's and Schiller's Tomb something, decide what must be every man for himself. Chapel of the Church behind the crypt is worth a look.

  • Schiller's coffin is empty though, but nevertheless, it is a sublime moment at least prior to Goethe's bones to stand. "You find Schiller" on the St. James churchyard.
