A journey to Weimar is well worth it for two reasons. Our guests can not only expect a first-class hotel with one-of-a-kind Bauhaus elements, but also the enchanting backdrop of the city which is not to be found anywhere else in the world. Arriving to Weimar is quite convenient. The nearby train station and the motorway provide easy access to the city. After their arrival, visitors to Weimar are rewarded with a view of the historic buildings, museums and legendary places. A visit to the Deutsches Nationaltheater (DNT) alone, constitutes a very special occasion for culture buffs.
