With a collection of around a million articles and book, Duchess Anna Amalia Library emphasizes the preservation of German literature and historical documents. The library building, along with its famous Rococo Hall, was damaged heavily by a fire in 2004, but has since been reopened for visitors. The building contains a book restoration and conservation workshop, a special collections department, and a reading room for scholars to study manuscripts, maps, and other documents. Temporary exhibits in the Renaissance Hall are open to visitors free of charge. If you want to visit the Rococo Hall, you should reserve your ticket at the visitor information office in advance. Day-of-visit tickets are available at 9:30 a.m. every day, but they sell out quickly. Take the guesswork out of planning a Weimar vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

A very beautiful library, though a bit overrated. The baroque hall was very nice but there wasn't much more to the library than that.
Absolutely gorgeous. Make time to stop if you're in the area - it is a fantasy setting with a rich history that cannot be replicated anywhere else on Earth.
