Have you ever heard about Saint Elisabeth, Martin Luther or the Minnesinger Walter von der Vogelweide?

All of them spent part of their lives on the Wartburg which is surrounded by dense and mysterious forests, towering majestically high above Eisenach. 

In different centuries, under diverse conditions and for different reasons, these persons left their traces there. Explore the Wartburg museum, the Luther Room, the palace banquet hall… or visit the medieval market and walk about the castle courtyard just like centuries ago. By the way, you can go up to this splendid Castle equipped with many art treasures quite leisurely on a donkey!
