Park An Der Ilm - Review
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.

Park An Der Ilm, Weimar Reviews
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.
Beautiful and quiet park in the middle of historical Weimar. In the park you can see Goethes Garden house which houses a little museum. The river Ilm runs through the park.
A massive park in the middle of the city, great for doing so many activities such as jogging,walking your dog,laying in the sun,riding your bike, sitting next to a huge tree and read a book etc.
The Park an der Ilm (Park at the River Ilm) is a beautiful and historical park in the town of Weimar. Apart from being a place to enjoy greenery, river, birds and let yourself be amidst the nature, it is also historical. The old bridge over the river Ilm leads directly to the Palace. The historical old library and the garden are treat to the eyes. If you cross the river, the garden house of Goethe is also situated in the park. If you happen to be in Weimar, it is a must visit.
A walk in the Ilm Park always uplifts my mood. Beautiful - Green - peaceful with interesting monuments like Göthe garden Hause, Römisches Haus and cool geographical wonders like underground tunnels and springs.
