Romeo and Juliet @ Sommertheater, Weimar

I got 2 tickets for William Shakespeare´s Romeo and Juliet as a birthday present from my girlfriend.  On a warm summer evening we packed our bags and headed towards Weimar. The theatre was built as a circle based in Weimar´s Goethe park. A very nice location and the really cool thing was, that the audience sat all around inside the circle and the acting happened right in the middle of the circle. And the acting had much action and motion. In many many ways it was a really modern interpretation with some parts below the belt, but with definetly great actors who made the 2 hours pass like a 2 minutes.

Enjoy 2 short videos I shot there :

restaurant : Alt Weimar, Weimar / Germany

Well it´s not one of my best protected secrets and so everyone who knows me or have seen me may already guess it : I like eating ! So from this point of view I decided to write a little bit about interesting places I visited to gain some food.

This is gonna be the first review, more to follow soon.

The Alt Weimar is a higher class restaurant with a small but very interesting menu. Though I didn´t knew most of the items on the menu (or haven´t heard their names either) it was one of the best meals of my life.

The reason for that might be star cook Sten Fischer ( who did a great job in serving an extraordinary, fresh and free of food additives dish.

Honestly – with 72,70 EUR for 2 persons it was not cheap and above my normal investment in food. But it was absolutely worth it.

My girlfriend did an interview with Sten Fischer about his job for her study and if we are lucky it will be available here soon.

The Alt Weimar has a website, too : – if you want to know more – check it out.

And last but not least – our menu (with absolutely no warranty for the translation) :

– selfmade woodruff punch

– goose liver soam soup

– anchorena lamb

– herb ribbon noodles

– variation from the frozen ananas

– variation from the torka bean

– water
