The baroque Belvedere Palace was built in the XVIII century as a hunting lodge and country residence for Duke Ernst August of Weimar. In the future, other Thuringian dukes also spent the summer here. Externally, the palace resembles the famous imperial residence of Schönbrunn in Vienna. It is surrounded by a large park with a greenhouse, where citruses are still grown, by the Russian Garden and a labyrinth. Inside is a rococo museum with an amazing collection of porcelain, faience, items of thin glass and silver. Another part of the exhibition is occupied by furniture and works of art of the XVIII century. In addition, the castle houses Weimar’s Franz Liszt Music School.
