Cultural education means embracing diversity. We invite you to discover and experience this diversity with us – be it on your own or by participating in our joint projects.

There are numerous things to learn about Weimar - from the achievements of Weimar Classicism to the ambivalent heritage of modernism. Educating the public about these topics is one of the central tasks of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar. With our educational programmes and a broad range of methods, we strive to address the various interests and needs of our visitors.

On the following pages, you will find many exciting ways to become involved: bookable programmes, open workshops, special events, materials for taking tours on your own, preparatory and follow-up teaching materials, and an overview of various model projects in which we continue to develop our educational measures.
