Rococo Hall

Call for donations

We would like to show our visitors the historical phases of construction, the diverse collection rooms and the largely hidden passages in the main historical building of the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek. This will be achieved both digitally and using a 1:50-scale wooden model which will be publicly displayed in the lobby. A retractable facade will also be installed to provide visitors a view into the core of the building.

The project can be carried out by the architect Walther Grunwald, who played an integral role in the rebuilding efforts following the library fire, and the modelmaker Thomas Looks, who assisted him in this endeavour. The project promises new and surprising perspectives on the historical ensemble and its collection rooms. The Gesellschaft Anna Amalia Bibliothek e.V. supports this ambitious project by the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek. However, the available resources are not sufficient to fully finance the model. We would be very grateful, therefore, if you could support us in creating this extraordinary architectural model with a tax-deductible donation.

We kindly ask you to send your donation to the Gesellschaft Anna Amalia Bibliothek e.V., payable to the following account at the Sparkasse Mittelthüringen:

IBAN: DE76 8205 1000 0301 0404 00
