Welcome to the Weimar Summer

That is Weimar, and during the summer it has yet another dimension: an open city landscape surrounded by green areas, parks and a river. Moving, pulsing, full of life. In the little alleys, in front of the palace and mansions. Art and music everywhere, history, stage, film and boulevard. Always up close to contemporary life, authentic, intelligent, uncomplicated – a whole summer long.
