- The Franz Liszt University of Music
- The Duchess Anna Amalia Library

Weimar is very prominent for its influential cultural heritage. Many academics consider Weimar as the cradle of Germany's Enlightenment era thru 17th -19th centuries. Weimar is an important place for any study or serious re-search of the German language and cultural heritage. There are many pioneering literature stars with scholarly and innovative achievements that actually resided, worked, and thrived in Weimar city under the patronage of the progressive rulers of those times like: Goethe, Bach, Schiller, Liszt, Cranach, Nietzsche, Herder, Gropius, Kandinsky, and Feininger just to name a few.
After WWI the monarchy was abolished, and the country was proclaimed as a federal Republic in 1919 by the National Assembly in Weimar. That was the start of the Weimar Republic between 1919 and 1933. The constitution of the German Reich, (identified by many as the Weimar Republic (1919–33)), was drafted in Weimar also. This Weimar Republic period was marred with social, economic and civil unrest that lead to the rise of the Nazis.
