Description: The tiny Thuringian town of Weimar witnessed a remarkable cultural zenith in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, which attracted countless writers and scholars, markedly Goethe and Schiller. This development is exposed within the high quality of numerous of its buildings and surrounding parks. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
