Weimar has a reputation far and wide as the place to visit in Germany for those visitors who want to bask in Germany’s wonderful history of artistic offerings. Among those, visitors must be absolutely certain not to miss the Liszt House Museum. Often overshadowed by the literary legacy of Weimar with such giants as Geothe and Schiller, Franz Liszt was a very influential composer and lived and worked here throughout much of his life.
While living here, Liszt composed one of his most famous pieces, the Hungarian Rhapsody, and fans of music in general have much to gush about here. The apartment contains many items from Liszt’s life which highlight the lifestyle of working artists in that day and age. Although the Museum was destroyed in World War II, a perfect copy of it has been rebuilt, and painstaking restored down to the tiniest detail. As such, it still offers a valuable look at the man, his legacy, and his place in the city’s history.
Address: Marienstrasse 17, Weimar, Thuringia, Germany
