For some people the Theaterplatz is the center of Weimar, others would say it is Park an der Ilm, as much as I love those places, the Markt is my favorite part of the town. There is always something happening there, sometimes theater outside the Tourist Information office, sometimes there are markets happening in the square. If you are there... More

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

It has a key access to schillerhaus, goethehaus, musikhochschule, bauhaus-uni and most of the... More

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.

The Weimar's market square is a popular gathering place for social, foods and drinks. 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
