On the boundary of the city of Weimar is Weimar's City Palace. The palace was originally built on the site of a medieval moated castle and was first mentioned in documents at the end of the 10th century. Its current design has developed over more than a thousand years.
The castle comprises of two parts: The colourful portal and tower (remains of the original Rennaissance palace), and the newer rectangular lines of the Neoclassical model. They stand together to make for a grand imperial palace.
The castle forms an impressive part of the Weimar cityscape, and offers great views from wherever it is seen: approaching from the Marktplatz, the Park an der Ilm, or as pictured here from the Platz der Demokratie.
