Do you like soul-touching classical dramas, the most beautiful symphonies and concerts or rather cheerful entertainment and political wit? An evening at the Landestheater Eisenach – always an experience!
The inhabitants of Eisenach are proud of their theatre! The local factory owner Julius von Eichel-Streiber gave it to the town in 1879. It was declared as Landestheater with its own three-division-ensemble in 1952 and transferred to the cultural foundation Meiningen-Eisenach some years ago. One of the largest ballet ensembles in Germany, the ”Junge Schauspiel Eisenach“ and the Landeskapelle are at home here. The tradition-steeped Südthüringische Staatstheater Meiningen performs plays and music theatre.
Amid jazz sounds you may still think you can almost smell fresh coffee in the air in the culture factory Alte Mälzerei: Where nowadays the oldest jazz club in East Germany and the jazz archives of the Lippmann + Rau-foundation are located, coffee was roasted from 1873 on.
The culture factory “Alte Mälzerei“ is the former home of the oldest jazz club in East Germany. The first records, already acquired in 1925, established the unique stock of the jazz archives. Until today it has been vastly expanded and has been administered by the Lippmann + Rau-foundation since 1996. However, not only canned jazz music can be heard in the Old Malthouse: From the venue of the Thuringian Jazz Mile and beyond you can always apprehend sounds of well-known jazz formations, and those that are still to be discovered, from the architecturally appealing jazz club that has evolved into an appreciated meeting point for jazz and swing enthusiasts from all over Germany.
An innovative wide range of professional and amateur theater awaits the visitor in the heart of Eisenach. The TAM will move or even change you? What is it – the TAM?
