Eisenach is a small town in the state of Thuringia, on the Eastern side of Germany. You will visit Eisenach not only because of its preserved ancient attraction but because of the town’s glorious history from Martin Luther to J.S Bach!
I’ve been to Eisenach last December 2013 and here are some places I highly recommend.
1. Wartburg Castle
This is where Martin Luther translated the Bible into the German Language. It is seated on the top of the hill above Eisenach, its one of the most taken picture in Germany.
The beautifully preserved house where Martin Luther stayed when he studied in Eisenach in his teenage years. It is now called “Luther Museum”.
The birth house of Johaness Sebastian Bach, a famous composer, where all his musical instruments, compositions and exhibit of the Bach Family resides. The house is over 600 years old!
13th-century cloister where J.S. Bach attended school!
5. The Marktplatz
6. Thuringian Foods
Every state of Germany has their own delicacies, here, they call it “Thüringer Klöße”!
7. The Tinyhouse
The narrowest inhabited house in Germany!! 6ft and 8 inches wide!! Unbelievable!
8. Nikolai Church
One of the few remaining city gates in Germany for others were demolished back in the 19th century.
9. Christmas Markets
You can have hot wine, grilled sausages and other German foods, buy some cute Christmas figurine and presents.
10. Shops and Souvenirs
What’s visiting a town without a little remembrance? Go to the famous Crown Spiel and Souvenir!
Fascinating, isn’t it? There are more other cities in Germany that are truly heart-capturing and worth-knowing!
Come and stand by with me as we stop on my next blog: Leipzig, Dresden and Berlin!!!
