Weimar was a significant centre for German culture during a period which became known as the Golden Age, from 1758 to 1832. It continued to play a part in the lives of many influential artists and thinkers, and it was where the Bauhaus School was founded in 1919. The city also gave its name to the Weimar Republic, the democratic German State which lasted from World War I to 1933.
