Lichtsaal of Hotel Elephant in Weimar

The hotel directly on the central market is one of the top addresses in Weimar. On the occasion of a dinner, I cross the amazing light hall (Lichtsaal) of the hotel. The hall is separated in several areas by bookshelves. The atmosphere is like in cosy living rooms. Numerous photographs, graphics and paintings help to shorten the time. [German]
