So beautiful. Wonderful stories about the past residents. Such lovely, delicate decor. Walking the rooms takes one back in time to graciousness.

A very entertaining and interesting place to visit; a great art collection (although I am not into early Russian icons so didn't spend long in that section). At least three items I would take home - high praise!

Very big castle witha very long history of the Weimar Ducal House but the most interesting to see are very impressive classical interiors and pianos as they have a great selection from various periods.
