Abstract (in English)

Weimar, a small city with 60.000 residents in the heart of Germany, is the historical central of the German classical period of literature. In view of its universal importance, this cultural heritage, closely connected with the name of Goethe, Germany’s greatest poet, has been included in the World Cultural Heritage List along with 11 of Weimar’s buildings. These comprise the living and working quarters of the classical poets, the city church, and three palaces with their surrounding parks. After the German classical era, the city of Weimar was time and again the focal point of the German and European elite. In 1902 the Dutch painter and architect Henry van de Velde came to Weimar and founded an art and an applied arts school. With these schools and their “art nouveau” buildings, Weimar’s tradition as an educational centre for architecture and applied arts was established.
