Eisenach and the Wartburg – an exciting history
Eisenach is a quiet little town with historic architecture – and only a stone's throw from Wartburg Castle. Hikers will love exploring the Rennsteig ridgeline trail.
Eisenach is closely associated with Wartburg Castle, the famous hideaway where Martin Luther translated the Bible. Its history and architecture make it a thrilling tourist destination. To hear many captivating stories about the castle, simply take a guided tour of the old residence. It also commands a spectacular view of the surrounding countryside. Discover the cute "narrow house" on a walk through the lovingly preserved historic city center of Eisenach. Steigenberger Hotel Thüringer Hof, being centrally located, is an ideal jumping-off point for tours of the town and hikes along the Rennsteig ridgeline trail. One of Germany's most famous hiking paths, the Rennsteig takes you back in time with its untouched forests and grass-covered hills.
