The park is set out very beautifully, and is a total oasis, take a book, some water, some snacks, find a tree in the shade and chill, perfect.

This park, on the banks of the river that flows through Germany's cultural centre of Weimar, is an idyllic and peaceful landscape in the natural "English" style of gardens, rather than the formal French parks that many European rulers favoured. Besides the beauty of the centuries-old arrangement of trees, river and buildings, the parks derives its special atmosphere from its... More

A beautiful park to walk, people watch or relax and read a book! I visited in mid summer and weather was perfect.

Park an der Ilm is big, and really beautiful especially in Spring. We didn't go inside Goethe's Garten Haus, but the park is definitely worth a visit. There was a violinist near the garden house that played peaceful songs that went great with the atmosphere.

We were here on a day trip, no idea of what to expect, but the whole of Weimar and especially this park surpassed our expectations. People are really helpful, Goethe's Garten Haus is worth a visit,

Lovely walk among large trees with much green open areas. The small river is quite pretty. Garden at Goethe´s Garden House is lovely and without fee. Exceptional bee museum at end of the park

When you acquire day tickets for the Anna Amalia library you probably have to wait a few hours before you can enter it. The closeby 'Park an der Ilm' then is the ideal place to visit while waiting. This romantic park is very nice and provides many other things to see like the gardenhouse of Goethe.

We walked along the park to Goethe's Garden House. Unfortunately, due to rain, much of the park was closed off.

We had a very nice evening walk in the park during our stay in Weimar. We were looking for Goethe's Garden House, so we took our time and took in the park. We stumbled upon a Soviet Soldier Cemetery, which for Americans was a bit surreal. We missed being able to go through the Caves because we got there too... More

A huge park with lots of historic monuments and houses, ruins, a cemetery for the killed sovjet soldiers in World War II near the mensa and a lovely river. During the day it's 'packed' with students and locals. At night, few lights in the park but this causes no unasafety at all. I would expect it to turn into a... More
