A hotel has stood on this sight since at least 1696. The present Elephant Hotel was completely rebuilt in 1938. Adolf Hitler use to stand on the balcony giving speeches to the crowds in the Market Square below and reviewing troops. A cut out figure now stands in the same position. Numerous other famous people have stayed in Weimar?s most famous hotel including Leo Tolstoy and J. S. Bach.
