Platz der Demokratie

Democracy Square is graced by an equestrian statue of Grand Duke Karl August of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (1757-1828). On the south side, the former palace (1770-74) is occupied by the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. Today, the pale pink palace (16C-18C) houses the library of Duchess Anna Amalia. In addition to incunabula, it contains rare printed works of the 16C and 17C and some 18C first editions.
