Weimar is steeped in history and is well known for playing a significant role in the cultural development of Germany throughout the ages. The city itself is in the federal state of Thuringia, which is one of the most central states in the country. Known for being quite a steep and mountainous area, Weimar boasts some fabulous views if you’re willing to take on some of the hillier terrain within the region. With a population of 65,000, Weimar is a very typical German city, offering many insights into German history and culture. It also has one of the lowest levels of annual precipitation in Germany, so you can almost be sure that you won’t need to bring an umbrella on board your bus! It doesn’t have to be completely dry though, just have a look at our Nightlife section below.
