    The library was founded before the lifetime of Anna Amalia in 1691 as "Ducal Library" by Duke Wilhelm Ernst.
    It was only on the occasion of her 300th anniversary in 1991 that she received the name of Duchess Anna Amalia, as she was considered a great sponsor of the library.

    The Ducal Library was founded in 1691, when Duke Wilhelm Ernst made his collected 1,400 books available to the public. Over the next thirty years, their holdings increased to 11,000 copies (Wikipedia).

    Definitely worth seeing, in my opinion the highlight of Weimar. The number of tickets is limited. When I was scared of my nervous wife an hour before opening for tickets, I was until just before opening but the only waiting, so do not panic
