Top 10 Things to Do in Eisenach

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.

Let’s start!

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.

2. Lutherhaus

The beautifully preserved house where Martin Luther stayed when he studied in Eisenach in his teenage years. It is now called “Luther Museum”. 

3. Bachaus

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!
