The ensemble of theatre, park and palace Kochberg – once the country estate of Goethe’s love Charlotte von Stein – is one of the most pleasant places in Thuringia; it is owned by the foundation Klassik Stiftung Weimar. A real gem is the carefully restored private theatre (“Liebhabertheater”) with its 75 seats, built for Carl von Stein around 1800. During the weekends from May to October one can enjoy outstanding drama and opera performances as well as concerts, featuring works from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic period, presented by renowned artists. The theatre is managed by the non-profit friends association “Freunde des Liebha bertheaters Schloss Kochberg e. V.” that champions historic performance practice.
