Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek - Review

Also known by its name in English, Duchess Anna Amalia Library, this place is the temple for German literature and historical documents. The library is a piece of wonderful architecture and was originally constructed as Anna Amalia’s residence in 1562. In 1761 she had it converted into a library.

A terrible fire in 2004 nearly destroyed the library; however, the bibliothek survived and is now home to some significant literary assortments. Today the library covers a wide range of subjects from German studies, literature, and philosophy to history, theatre studies and cultural anthropology. Its collection today comprises approximately 1 million books, 2600 book manuscripts, 8,600 maps and 29 globes with sound storage media, microfiches and electronic data carriers also as a part of the inventory.

Some significant collection and sites of the library include –

  • A Shakespeare collection of approximately 10,000 volumes translated by Christopher Martin Weiland.
  • The world’s largest Faust collection.
  • The Duchess’s impressive 13000 volume music collection.
  • A 16th century bible connected to the German friar Martin Luther.
  • The brilliant Rococo hall (Rokokosaal) marked by the portrait of Grand Duke Carl August.

The main building of the library was formerly the Green Castle. The Red and Yellow Castle now form the study centre of the museum and are one of the oldest and architecturally exquisite buildings. The library regularly holds various exhibitions and events and is one of Klassik Stiftung’s Institutions. The historic building along with its infamous Rococo hall is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1998.

Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek, Weimar Reviews

  • Totally overpriced. 8 euros to see a nice room that is the old library and that is all. You cannot even walk freely in this room.

  • The price is too high for a short look at the Rococo hall, in which gorgeous..., not fine if you look into details, and it’s not convincing because is not useful for public.

  • This is now a save place for books.

  • Schwanke zwischen vier und fünf Sternen, da ich Bücher liebe, sind's fünf geworden. Die Führung ist schnell durch, jede Büste wird vorgestellt, ist etwas langatmig, den Film über die Restaurierung der verbrannten Bücher fand ich jedoch hoch interessant. Der Rokokosaal ist beeindruckend. Karten werden zu jeder halben und vollen Stunde verkauft. Fotos dürfen ohne Blitz gemacht werden.

  • Diese Bibliothek ist eindrucksvoll und absolut sehenswert. Einen Stern Abzug für das zwar sehr freundliche, aber absolut uninformierte Personal. Ich musste eine Handtasche, kleiner DinA4, vor dem Rundgang verschließen und mir alle wichtigen Dinge in die Hosentasche stopfen. Auf spätere Nachfrage habe ich erfahren, dass es durchaus möglich ist, so eine kleine Tasche mitzunehmen und dass darüber hinaus sogar kleine Taschen vor Ort zur Verfügung gestellt werden können, um wichtige Dinge mitnehmen zu können.
