Urban Castle - Art Museum and Interiors of Philosophers

Weimar Castle on the Ilm River is easily recognizable by a massive circular tower with a dome and clock. It was destroyed by fires several times, and then was rebuilt. Today’s complex dates back to the end of the XVIII and early XIX centuries. The interiors of the castle that have been preserved to this day were designed by Duchess Maria Pavlovna - the daughter of Emperor Paul I and the wife of the Duke of Weimar. She thought out how to arrange the rooms dedicated to the great German poets and philosophers Goethe, Schiller, Herder and Wieland.

Since 1923, the palace has housed the Art Museum, which exhibits paintings by Cranach (senior and junior), Tischbein, Beckmann, works of Auguste Rodin. In addition, the exhibition here includes paintings of the French and German artists of the XX century and a rare collection of porcelain that belonged to Duchess Maria Pavlovna.
