Who doesn’t associate Weimar with its two most famous poets? Historical sites like the Goethe and Schiller Residences shed light on an era in which courtly and bourgeois culture began to intertwine. The Round Table gatherings at Duchess Anna Amalia’s Wittumspalais and other literary salons encouraged fruitful exchange. Poets and writers produced literary works which were characterised by liberal views and humanistic aspirations. This development is evident in the holdings of the Herzogin Anna Amalia Bibliothek where Goethe himself served as library director for 35 years.
