The society „Grüne Wahlverwandtschaften“ was founded in February 2006 by a group of Weimar citizens.

The title is made up of the Word “Green”, which is the focal point of our society, and “Elective Affinities", the title of a famous novel by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

  • The aim of our society is to conserve, maintain and reconstruct the historic gardens and parks of Weimar and to make the public aware of their cultural, historical and ecological value.
  • We encourage the preservation of these historical gardens through voluntary engagement and we actively involve young and old in our work.
  • We pass on information about the history, design ideas and the present status of the gardens through guided walks, lectures and publications and we support necessary reconstruction work.
  • We are helping to preserve our historic gardens and parks as a cultural inheritance for future generations.
