Welcome in Weimar and Erfurt!
I offer you best guided tours in WEIMAR and ERFURT. These cities are among the most popular destinations of Germany and are located in the middle of the country.
As early as the eighteenth century, Weimar was often referred to as the new German Athens, and Erfurt as the Rome of Thuringia.
The Enchanting Weimar
This city of world-famous artists also has a further epithet – the heart of German culture. In Weimar lived such famous composers as Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Liszt and Richard Strauss, the greatest poets of Germany J.W. Goethe and F. Schiller, the founder of the Bauhaus design style Walter Gropius and the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. German democracy also began in Weimar: in this city, Germany was proclaimed as the Weimar Republic in 1919.
The diversity of Weimar is simply amazing for all visitors to the city. How can such a relatively small city be so multifaceted? What causes led to such a phenomenal development? What has made Weimar so unique? The exaustive answers to all of these questions are given to my guests during our tour.

In Eisenach it is also recommended to visit the museum in the house of the famous composer Johann Sebastian Bach.
Many guests visit the Buchenwald Memorial with its impressive monumentality on the site of the former notorious Nazi concentration camp from 1937 to 1945, which is only 8 km from Weimar.
