University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar
Franz Liszt, who spent a great deal of his life in Weimar, encouraged the founding of a school in 1835 for the education of musicians in orchestral instruments. It was his student Carl Müllerhartung who realized Liszt's dream, founding the university on 24 June 1872.
The university is located in several different buildings in the centre of Weimar.
