Option two is taking part in a guided tour of the former concentration camp Buchenwald near Weimar.

Option 1: City of Weimar

Bauhaus-Museum Weimar

"The Bauhaus comes from Weimar"

In 2019, to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Weimar State Bauhaus in 1919, the new Bauhaus Museum Weimar opened and has since been presenting the treasures of the world's oldest Bauhaus collection.

Goethe National Museum & Goethe Residence

The Goethe National Museum is the most significant museum for the presentation and study of the life and work of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The museum houses an exceptional treasure: the poet's home with original furnishings and collection items. Numerous pieces can also be viewed in the neighbouring exhibition "Lebensfluten - Tatensturm" (Floods of Life - Storm of Deeds), which illustrates Goethe's complexity beyond his literary work.

Entrance fee: 13€

Schiller Museum

The Schiller Museum, opened in 1988, is the first and only literature museum built in the former GDR. With its close connection to the poet's historic home, the museum was originally dedicated to the appreciation of the life and work of the versatile German poet. Today it serves as a venue for temporary exhibitions of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.

Entrance fee: 6€

Schillerstraße 12
99423 Weimar

Schiller Residence

Before his death in 1805, Friedrich Schiller spent his final three years in this house on the Esplanade, where he wrote his famous plays "The Bride of Messina" and "William Tell". Today, Schiller's original desk and bed can be visited in his former living quarters.

Option 2: Buchenwald

The concentration camp Buchenwald was established in 1937 on the Ettersberg, a mountain just 10 kilometres outside of Weimar. It was the biggest concentration camp on the territory of the initial Third Reich. Its capacities were originally made for 8,000 prisoners, but exceeded this constantly by more than four times, keeping around 24,000 male inmates locked up. The concentration camp had the size of a medium city but was not secluded – on the contrary: the interaction between guards, inmates and civilians of the surrounding villages and cities was a given at all times. Buchenwald was not only logistically favourable but also a location with high symbolic meaning due to the close vicinity to Weimar, which was Hitler’s favourite German city. After the war, the Sowjet military administration used the camp as a denazification camp for actual or supposed Nazi perpetrators. During GDR times the memorial site was used to teach the national antifascist narrative.
If you want to learn more about Buchenwald with special focus on the time between 1937 and 1945, we invite you to join us.
The entrance to the memorial site is free and the guided tour will be provided by KomRex-employee Dr. Cynthia Möller. Regarding opening hours and early dusk, a small bus will be organized to take participants to the memorial site and then back to Jena and/or Weimar Central Station.

Transportation fee: approx. 20€ (depending on the number of participants)
