Experience classical Weimar, part of the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO and stay at the five-star Hotel Elephant. In the 18th and 19th century, artists from around the world including music composers Richard Wagner and Johann Sebastian Bach, to poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe came to explore the city of Weimar. 

Hotel Elephant has a central Weimar market square location, and you can take a short stroll through the historic city center and visit the Goethe-Schiller Monument, the Bauhaus Museum and Goethe's Garden House, all just a five-minute walk away.

The german writer Thomas Mann immortalized the hotel in his novel "Lotte in Weimar" and past guests at the hotel include Angela Merkel, rock singer Patti Smith or national football coach Joachim Löw.

In the hotel's guest rooms, Bauhaus and Art Deco elements blend discreetly together. Fine wooden furniture, soft yellow walls, soft carpets and upholstery in blue or red create comfort and a cosy atmosphere.

Breakfast is served buffet style or in the room. You can also visit the gourmet restaurant Anna Amalia. Here, star cook Marcello Fabbri will spoil you with Italian specialties. In the Elephantenkeller (elephant cellar) with its historical cross-vault, we recommend the crispy duck curry with a Thuringian dumpling. Afterwards, guests can relax with a glass of wine in the Elephant Bar with piano music and views of the market square.
