As the name suggests, the charming Park an der Ilm is located along the river Ilm. Created in between 1778 and 1828, the landscaped park was heavily influenced by Johann Wolfgang Goethe. The park along with the gardens of Belvedere and Tiefurt castle form a long greenway along the river.
The Park an der Ilm is an institution of the Klassik Stiftung-the UNESCO World Heritage site consisting of multiple structures across Weimar. The main attractions of the park consist of –
- The Roman House
- Goethe’s Garden and
- Garden House
- The Shakespeare Monument
- Busts of poets such as Alexander Puschkin, Louis Fürnberg, Adam Mickiewicz and Sandor Petofi
- Various bridges and monuments
The lush green lawns of the park welcome you with open arms. The park is home to various local and exotic varieties of trees and is also proud of its valuable plants. With maples, chestnuts and hornbeams, the park has a distinct beauty to it and is almost like an oasis. The park has been carefully preserved since Goethe and hasn’t changed much since then. The 48 hectare park consists of various lines of sights which link the Roman House, Goethe’s house and other features of the garden.

It was all so beautiful and take your breath away. The real nature was made there
A nice park in the middle of Weimar near several old buildings. Go here, relax, have a picnic and enjoy the nice weather (it does happen sometimes)!
Nice park to relax or walk/cycle. Nothing spectaculair about it but it is pretty. Not very clean on some places and doesn't look very maintained.
Really nice and refreshing. The park is so large so you can do almost anything here.
wonderful park full of beautiful trees, and buildings
