Pretty simple question. We have four nights. Should we spend 4 in Weimar, 4 in Erfurt or 2 in each.
Since the one cane reached from the other in 20 minutes by train, it simply does not matter. I would not change hotels midway, though.
I was not very impressed with Weimar. Too much Goethe and Schiller for my taste ;-) If you're not planning some evening activity there (like attending a performance at the Nationaltheater) I'd say you better spend four nights in Erfurt.
4 nights in Weimar seems like overkill. I would tend toward Erfurt as a base and go on day trips.
A few years ago we spent three nights in Weimar and did not run out of things to see and do. What I particularly liked was that as an American living in Germany, there was a nice selection of German and very good non-German restaurants within a few blocks of our hotel. If you're into German culture such as Goethe, Schiller and Wieland, it's the place to be. The Anna Amalia library is excellent, just make reservations ahead of time unless you're there early as there is limited entry.
