    In the south of Weimar rises on a hill the Belvedere Palace, surrounded by a 43-acre park. Duke Ernst August of Saxe-Weimar and Eisenach built here between 1724 and 1748 a baroque summer residence including an orangery and a pleasure and maze. Since 1923, the Belvedere Palace has been a museum of 18th century handicraft.

    The Belvedere is one of the most beautiful residences in Thuringia. The entire complex, including the park with its many exotic plants, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1998 as part of the "Classic Weimar" ensemble (Wikipedia).
