(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
With a collection of around a million articles and book, Studienzentrum der Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek emphasizes the preservation of German literature and historical documents.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.

  • During a visit to Weimar, the library is required! The tour takes about an hour.

  • Reserve in advance as there is only a limited contingent of tickets. Everyone in the Marvel comes in the Rococo Hall! 30 to 60 minutes time schedule.

  • Impressive as the library was restored after the fire. We found especially the information about the technology of the book restoration super!

  • I must say in one: the report based on hearsay - I was namely 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. For conservation reasons (probably due to the humidity, which hurt the old books), daily just 250 visitors may visit the Hall. 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.
