Like Erfurt, Weimar is located near the geographic centre of Germany. It’s a small town with over 60000 people, but what it lacks in size is surely made up in history and the number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The city hosts multiple sites in two separate categories:
Erfurt, Weimar, and the state of Thuringia were hosts for Germany Travel Mart 2015 (GTM15), the annual meeting and workshop by the Germany National Tourism Board. Visiting the “heart of Germany” fulfilled my desire to spend time in the former East Germany. Many overlook Thuringia and the middle of Germany on their way elsewhere, but the following shots provide reasons why you should consider stop and embrace one of the “centres of classic and modern Germany.”
I’m very grateful to Weimar Tourism, Thüringen Tourismus, Germany National Tourism Board for access to places and activities in the city; and to Dorint Hotel am Goethepark for a comfortable and welcoming stay. I made the photos between 27 April and 1 May 2015. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6PS.
