Item details



In April 1849, Jacob Grimm began writing the first articles for »The German Dictionary«, the largest and most comprehensive dictionary on the German language. He turns to the letters A, B, C. Brother Wilhelm joins the work at the D - and a lexicographical martyrdom begins. It was not until 1971 that the work was completed with volume 33, in which approx. 320,000 keywords on 34,824 pages testify to an almost incomprehensible richness of language.

The Grimm dictionary is the Wunderkammer and the word memory of the German language. The very combination of words from different areas and times, given by the alphabet, gives him an incomparable poetry.
Discover with us unknown word beauties, salacious curiosities and fairytale-exotic word creations from the forgotten magazines of this incomparable word museum.

Store Information
Weimarer Klassiker
The cultural heritage of the city of Weimar in Thuringia is diverse: Goethe, Schiller, Liszt, the Duchess Anna Amalia, Nietzsche and many more have lived here and left their mark. For example, Weimar has more than 11 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which are maintained by the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and made accessible to the public.

The Klassik Shop Weimar is actually more than just one: We run all the museum shops for Klassik Stiftung Weimar, e.g. in the historic homes of Goethe and Schiller, in the Anna Amalia Library, and we also take care of the assortments in the museums of e.g. Liszt, Nietzsche and in the castles and parks of the city and its surroundings.

Not all products offered online can be found in every shop in Weimar. If you have questions about availability, we look forward to hearing from you by phone +49 (0)3643-545 880 (weekdays only).

Feel also invited to our Bauhaus Shop here at Sugartrends!
