Location & Arrival

Location

The Youth Hostel can be found in one of Weimar's most beautiful residential areas near the road leading into the city. The old town is some 10 minutes away on foot. Weimar is surely a record-breaker, what with its plethora of sights, 3 castles and stunning park grounds. The little streets and squares of the idyllic old town will transport you back to times gone by. Here you'll find the houses where famous literary figures of old once lived - at every turn you will encounter signs of German Classicism and literary greats. Weimar's entire old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. "Where else can you find so many things in such a small place?", Goethe once asked when he came to Weimar. Just like back then, today the art world continues to be drawn to Weimar. Here the spirit of German Classicism is alive. Modernism, too, has left its mark on this place thanks to Bauhaus. Weimar is the cradle of German democracy, a highly significant place of cultural education for people from around the world.
