Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
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and book, Studienzentrum der Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek emphasizes the preservation of German literature and historical documents.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.

Therefore the urgent recommendation: please call the Internet page. But highly worth seeing is the library. Even if I advance greater than imagined it. It is a real cultural highlight. Must be seen in Weimar. There's a good audioguide. Worth seeing is also the exhibition to the restoration after the great fire. It is located on the ground floor and if you look at also.show original
Wir hatten das Glück, aus dem Tageskontingent noch Karten zu ergattern - das frühe Aufstehen und Anstellen hat sich dann auch gelohnt.

For larger groups, it is advisable to reserve tickets if you want to see the Rococo Hall. There is still an exhibition about the restoration after the fire of 2004, which is also worth a visit, you can visit free of charge and without reservation. The Rococo Hall and its atmosphere is beautiful and impressive, however I can understand also if thats not jedermenschens thing. Probably, you already have a at least a general interest in history and literature have to be able to enjoy the library. There, as in all other exhibitions/museums I visited in Weimar, explained a first-class audio guide, which is included in the admission price and you can see much of what the vivid and sometimes also child-friendly.show original
Jürgen FingerI 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.show original
