The estate park occupies six hectares of the altogether 150 hectares of land that Christoph Martin Wieland bought with the residential house in Oßmannstedt in 1797. The poet had the park developed in the six years that he lived here. On the basis of a new concept, since summer 2005 the building gives insight into the life and works of Wieland. His grave, where he was laid to rest with his wife and Sophie Brentano, is located in a remote section directly by the river Ilm. Dropping by the newly created literature museum rounds off the visit nicely.
