Weimar's cultural heritage is vast. It is most often recognised as the place where Germany's first democratic constitution was signed after the First World War, giving its name to the Weimar Republic period 1918–1933.
However, the city was also the focal point of the German Enlightenment and home of the leading characters of the literary genre of Weimar Clacissism, the writers Goethe and Schiller. It was also the birthplace of the Bauhaus movement, founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, with artists Wassily Kandinski, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and Lyonel Feininger teaching in Weimar's Bauhaus School.
Many places in Weimar's city center have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. It is one of the most interesting and attractive small European towns.
