Former Schönfärbe and Kammerfrauenhaus at the Wittumspalais
The Wittumspalais is comprised of the Palais (mansion), the Schönfärbe (dye house) and the Kammerfrauenhaus (court ladies’ house). The Baroque-period building ensemble with an enclosed inner courtyard was created when the mansion was adjoined to the significantly older Schönfärbe and Kammerfrauenhaus from 1767 to 1769. The renovation measures were carried out on the buildings on the eastern side of the courtyard, both of which are not used for museum activities.
From September 2016 to October 2018 both buildings were renovated in accordance with historical preservation guidelines and fitted to meet the requirements of modern usage. The buildings now contain office space for the staff of the Research and Education department and seminar rooms for educational activities offered by the Klassik Stiftung Weimar.
The measures have created a central contact point and meeting place which offers a variety of services and educational activities for groups in the centre of downtown Weimar.
