Division of the municipality
Although not famous for any particular sights, the "Bühl" in Weimar attracted geological interest at the beginning of the 20th century as it is one of the very few places where elementary iron (i.e. no iron compounds) can be found. The former mine is now a lake which is popular as a swimming pool.
From 1945 till 2008, Ahnatal has always had a social-democratic government. However, in the most recent elections of a mayor, the Christian-democratic candidate Michael Aufenanger was elected.
