Castles, Gardens and Buildings

The management with its monumental preservation, gardens and property administration departments looks after the Stiftung’s immovable properties. Besides administration, ongoing care and maintenance, its tasks encompass repairs, renovations and restoration, even new construction in exceptional cases.

The properties, castles and buildings serve as structural shells to house the museum, archive and library collections; the great parks and private gardens are listed cultural monuments from various epochs. The UNESCO World Heritage Site »Classical Weimar« comprises the core of the property. Preparation and maintenance by experts in the field of conservation in agreement with architects, landscape designers, engineers, surveyors and restorers and corresponding monitoring and documentation are therefore the Stiftung’s main activity.
