Promenaders reach Villa Haar via a long outside staircase that connects the building with the Ilmpark (Park an der Ilm). Trees provide shade during the ascent, revealing a neo-Renaissance style villa. The stairwell inside is not particularly large but enchanted by its lovely wall decoration.
The house once belonged to a wealthy department store owner in Weimar. Today it is used for seminars, parties and wedding celebrations. A café offers strollers not only cake and coffee but also a fine view of the Ilmpark.
