It's a pretty ordinary market square, I don't know why it's rated so high. Not bad, but not exceptional.

As it is located in the city center of weimar therefore, it is nice to see there especially in summer when there are seats outside and you can have a coffee and look to a historical place which some pictures of WWII was taken from there. It has a key access to schillerhaus, goethehaus, musikhochschule, bauhaus-uni and most of the... More

Guided tour was being taken around the various buildings and had a lot to say outside the Elephant Hotel. The main tourism office is here so collect your leaflets etc. Also a ladies clothes shop which has a cat which sits on... More

The market place had been taken over by the Christmas market when we were there so a bit difficult to fully appreciate the old and attractive facades , lovingly restored after war damage and GDR neglect . Tourist information is situated here .

Weimar's altstadt has a great relaxed vibe. Enjoy local cafes, walk along cobblestone streets and attractive architecture, see the historic Elephant Hotel, and stroll over the bridge to shady banks. Nice place for couples.

Small city, we stopped there on our way to Dresden, could certainly pass this experience. If there walk along the old city and the park

Come here you will find farmer's market varieties from fresh produce, fruits, cheeses, flowers and its famous original Thuringian long skinny grilled bratwursts tuck in small round buns and topped with stone ground mustard. You hold the bun and bite off the bratwurst from both ends... More

2014 was the 361st annual Onion Market in Weimar. It bills itself as the world's oldest Onion Market, occurring annually, despite wars and political change since 1653. It was a blast. 300,000 happy Germans descend on this quaint city of 60,000 locals. This is a unique 3 day event, always the second weekend in October, it truly has something for... More
