Worth seeing: Thuringian Museum in Eisenach, City Palace

The baroque City Palace once served as a ducal residence. Today, the Thuringian Museum of Eisenach presents its diverse collections in its magnificent rooms. After many years of restoration work, the historic rococo hall can now be visited again.

Looking at the impressive façade of the Eisenach City Palace on the north side of the market square, it is hard to believe that the master builder skilfully incorporated six time-honoured town houses. In 1755, the Duke of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach moved into the stately residence and numerous famous visitors - such as Goethe and Frau von Stein, Telemann and Richard Wagner - came to see him.

Today, the City Palace houses the Thuringian Museum of Eisenach and the tourist information. Porcelains, faiences and glasses, graphics, wrought iron, traditional costumes, paintings, a historic pharmacy and much more can be discovered in the magnificent exhibition rooms.
