German National Theatre Weimar

Goethe's Court Theatre

A place steeped in history, where not only the privy councillor Goethe was theatre director, but also where the National Assembly launched Germany's first democratic constitution in 1919.

With around 600 ­performances a year, the German National Theatre, ­as the most renowned stage in Thuringia together with its symphonic orchestra, the Staatskapelle Weimar, profoundly ­enriches the ­city's schedule of events. ­Invitations to major theatre festivals, nominations and prizes, important world premières­, monumental large-scale projects such as the production of the complete "Ring des Nibelungen" and national and international co-productions bear witness to the theatre's superior artistic standing.
