Eisenach Old Town


In the footsteps of Martin Luther

In Eisenach, Thuringia, you can feel the eventful history around every corner. On a tour of the historic old town, you can marvel at imposing buildings and magnificent churches, as well as the narrowest residential and half-timbered house and the largest colony of villas in Germany. A special attraction for tourists from all over the world is the almost thousand-year-old Wartburg Castle. As part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, it impressively displays examples of medieval and late Romanesque building and living culture. Wartburg Castle is also known as an important site of German history. In addition to Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Martin Luther, who translated the New Testament here, also lived here.
