Weimar in a Glance

I went to Weimar last week. Weimar is the capital of former Weimar Republic, a short lived sovereign country in Europe. Oh well, ok it’s Germany nowadays. The city also is well known as a cultural city in Europe, flourished under the regency of Herzogin Anna Amalia, the mother of the Crown Prince, Carl August. Schiller was there. Goethe was there. Bach was there. AndersenSAMSUNG was there. Even Hitler was there.

I was staying in a nice three star hotel at the old town, Hotel am Frauenplan. A lady at Tourist Information informed me this hotel. It’s strategically located, easy to reach anywhere in the city, clean, good service and cheap (at least by Swiss standard).

I spent my days wandering around this old city, amazed by the architecture and history. I walked around from one museum to another one, and no matter how long I took, it was never enough. Unfortunately I went there by end of November, when the darkness rose too early. Most museums were closed at 4 pm. Sigh…why couldn’t they switch on the lamps so I still could enjoy it?

Apart of wandering around the city, which by Indonesian standard is like a giant museum itself, I went to Buchenwald. There was a concentration camp in that area. There is a bus from Weimar to Buchenwald. It was cold, windy and foggy when I was there, it added up the spooky ambience. I visited the graveyards, crematorium, and all. One thing I could say, it is not recommended for a lone traveller to go there alone, particularly by the end of autumn, since it could be overwhelming.
