Goethe's Gardens

Green Worlds on the Roof of the Bundeskunsthalle

13 April to 15 September 2019

The garden on the rooftop of the Bundeskunsthalle beckons visitors to feast their eyes and minds. In 1776, when Goethe moved into his first Weimar home not far from the river Ilm, he was particularly interested in the extensive garden and immediately set about its redesign. In addition to a kitchen garden, he created a small landscape garden in the English style with winding paths and shady spots to rest and read. He kept numerous flowerbeds for his botanical experiments that led him to develop his own theory on the metamorphosis of plants. When he moved into the house on the Frauenplan in central Weimar, he once again devoted a great deal of attention to the garden and devoted a pavilion to his collection of minerals, rocks and fossils from all over the world.
The Bundeskunsthalle roof garden will pick up on all these aspects. Because it will change with seasons, visitors are advised to return from time to time.
