The Casimirianum, a grammar school, is one of the most important Renaissance buildings constructed under Duke John Casimir (1586 – 1633). The regent established the school to rival the University of Jena in 1598. Casimirianum was supposed to become a state school (university), but the duke later abandoned these plans. One of most renowned students was Johann Caspar Goethe, the father of the famous poet. (Gymnasiumsgasse 2– 4)
