Projects of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the State Chancellery of Thuringia, Department of Culture and the Arts.
The Klassik Stiftung Weimar is comprised of a unique ensemble of cultural and historical landmarks. Eleven of these have been officially recognised as the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Classical Weimar”. This distinction acknowledges Weimar’s great art-historical significance as “an intellectual centre of the late 18th and early 19th century”. Several spacious parks and gardens are part of Weimar’s world cultural heritage, particularly the parks at Belvedere Castle and Tiefurt Mansion.
