Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek, Weimar

4.6
With a collection of around a million articles and book, Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek emphasizes the preservation of German literature and historical documents. The library building, along with its famous Rococo Hall, was damaged heavily by a fire in 2004, but has since been reopened for visitors. The building contains a book restoration and conservation workshop, a special collections department, and a reading room for scholars to study manuscripts, maps, and other documents. Temporary exhibits in the Renaissance Hall are open to visitors free of charge. If you want to visit the Rococo Hall, you should reserve your ticket at the visitor information office in advance. Day-of-visit tickets are available at 9:30 a.m. every day, but they sell out quickly. Take the guesswork out of planning a Weimar vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • If you want to visit the Rokokkosaal, you should be cards pre-order (8,00 EUR), since every day only a limited number of visitors you get. I personally was not so spectacular it (Wiblingen Abbey, Kappa Schussenried or St. Gallen are nicer), the free exhibition on the ground floor to the restoration of the library is interesting but after the fire

  • A place that stimulates interest in different times and levels of history and is also a temple for books to choice of beauty and atmosphere. The exhibition to the fire and the restoration of documents the complex and not sufficiently marred efforts to rescue the stocks - but it drives one also brought tears to the eyes, whether the irreplaceable treasures of knowledge and culture, which were damaged or destroyed.

  • Too bad that so many people at once are admitted. Unfortunately you could look at anything in peace

  • A beautiful small University. Great courtyard

  • I must say one above: report based on hearsay - I was indeed not in the library. First of all we must distinguish: opposite the old building, there is a modern research library, where probably every scientist would love to work apparently. There is the famous Rococo Hall, which burned down and was rebuilt in the old building. (Probably due to the humidity, which harms the old books) for conservation reasons, everyday just 250 visitors may visit the room. Because go away about 200 cards in advance, are reserved or go on group tours, only 50 cards in the free sale come every morning. You should be there so just in time for the opening and must be available if necessary. I suppose it would have been impressive for me as for every bibliophiles. So had to meet a postcard for the lasting impression. There is a small exhibition, which can be seen as well.
