Weimar, palace and bridge

Η χρυσή εποχή του νεοκλασικισμού: Επιστροφή στην αρχαιότητα

Οι ευθείες γραμμές και η απέριττη δομή που θυμίζουν αρχαιοελληνικό ναό, χαρακτηρίζουν τα παλάτια και τα ανάκτορα της νεοκλασικής εποχής. Στο κλασικό ανάκτορο της Βαϊμάρης, το οποίο προστατεύεται από την UNESCO, η επίδραση του Goethe είναι διάχυτη.

In 1789, under the influence of Goethe, Duke Carl August of Saxe-Weimar gave the order to rebuild Weimar Palace in the neo-classical style. The park on the Ilm, a leafy retreat covering almost 50 hectares, also dates back to this time. read more »

Built in the early classical style in 1769, this summer palace in Greiz is home to a wonderful collection of historical engravings. It was commissioned by Prince Heinrich XI (1722-1800), who had the pediment inscribed with the words Maison de belle retrait – house of beautiful retreat .

In 1790, the Landgraves and Grand Dukes of Hessen-Darmstadt had the 'Fürstenlager' built as their summer residence. It was located in an idyllic little valley amid the Odenwald forest in Auerbach near Bensheim. Particularly impressive are the surrounding buildings that have survived almost completely intact.
