Owner description: Einen illustren Einblick in das herzogliche Leben gewährt die barocke Sommerresidenz, die heute Gemälde, Interieur und filigranes Kunsthandwerk des 18. Jahrhunderts präsentiert. Schon vor Jahrhunderten war der eindrucksvolle Landschaftspark mit der bedeutenden Pflanzensammlung in der Orangerie ein beliebtes Ausflugsziel für die Weimarer Bürger. Herzog Ernst August von Sachsen-Weimar und Eisenach ließ das Schloss zwischen 1724 und 1748 einschließlich einer Orangerie sowie eines Lust- und Irrgartens errichten. Gemeinsam mit Goethe betrieb der seit 1775 regierende Herzog Carl August in Belvedere pflanzenkundliche Studien.

Schloss Belvedere has one of the most beautifull surrounding gardens. Be aware that it is huge. If you have the chance the garden is best visited by bike.

Lovely setting. Inside you can really appreciate the opulence of how they lived. A small schloss but very picturesque. The gardens are lovely.

The schloss itself is not too big therefore a leisurely stroll can be taken through the rooms with still time to visit the gardens and stop at the nearby teashop and sample some coffee and kucken. The collection in the schloss contains rather a lot of china, which after seeing in several rooms I became bored and looked more closely instead to the decor and beautiful plaster relief. Fantastic views from the schloss over look the fabulous English landscaped gardens.

This is a very nice place to walk and admire the romantic-era gardens and views. We did not go into any of the buildings, just spent an hour or so roaming the trails, exploring the topiary maze, taking in all the plants and wildlife.

The Orangerie was under MAJOR renovation in July 2012, I assume construction will be complete by winter as all the orange trees were outside...

Its very quiet up here, even though fairly close to town.
