The phoenixlike rebirth of Anna Amalia’s precious library following a disastrous fire in 2004 is nothing short of a miracle. The magnificent Rokokosaal (Rococo Hall) is crammed with 40,000 tomes once used for research purposes by Goethe, Schiller and other Weimar hot shots. Scholars may still borrow the books; for others, the fine busts and paintings of these men offer an interesting backdrop. Entry is by timed ticket and capped at 290 people per day, so book in advance or start queuing before the ticket office opens at 9.30am.
