    In Weimar, the splendor and misery of German history are as close together as in few places. At the end of the eighteenth century, German classical music began to rise in literature and philosophy, which earned the Germans the reputation of poets and thinkers. In the disorganized Weimar Republic, the catastrophe that culminated in the Holocaust, which also took place in Buchenwald Concentration Camp, came to a head.The third route leads to the local memorial. From the station, there is a ten-kilometer path on the route of the former Buchenwaldbahn. A freight car on a blue and white striped ground is the signet of today's walk to the concentration camp. You can shorten the route if you take bus 6 to the Obelisk and from there walk for four kilometers to the memorial.
