Visiting this theater you can see first of all the monument to Goethe and Schiller dedicated in 1857 and built by Ernst Rietschel.
The inscription reads,
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
To the great poets' pair from the German people
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
There are always flowers at the foot of the monument.
You can see and hear theater and opera performances at this theater. There are also concerts of the Weimar State Orchestra and Franz Liszt College of Music here.
You can see here another picture of the German National Theater. It's an old GDR postcard. I didn't save money on postcards, thank God! Thanks, GDR publishers!.
I enjoyed visiting this theater! My friends and I were very impressed by both its exterior and the interior. No doubt that visiting this theater is a must for any visitor of Weimar.
