a rather sleepy little town in germany, founded conjointly by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller around the Ginkgo Tree.

formerly an interesting place where important and "good" things were done, like writing Faust, founding the Weimar Republic or inventing Bauhaus, but also Hitler's favourite town and therefore a booming Nazi centre during the so-called third reich. The nearby "Buchenwald" KZ was being tolerated by the population.

currently features an interesting little university (http://www.uni-weimar.de/) and associated party culture, but not much other stuff thats not at least 50 years old.
