Castle ensemble as a World Heritage Site
Since 2008, the World Heritage Site Ettersburg Castle in the Weimar region has been used as an exclusive event venue with an integrated conference hotel. The ensemble of buildings, originally built in the early 18th century by the dukes of Weimar as a hunting lodge, was renovated and revitalised in every respect a few years ago. The castle has seen many famous guests in the past, including Bach, Liszt, Herder, Goethe and Schiller.
An inspiring and creative place even today - in the middle of green landscapes, but accessible by the Weimar city bus. The castle has nothing museum-like about it, but rather comprises a state-of-the-art conference centre with almost 30 hotel rooms for overnight guests and ten event rooms.

Perhaps the most beautiful room is the White Hall, about 80 square metres in size, whose white walls and ceiling are artistically decorated with white stucco.
