Thuringia travel guide

Castles · Landmarks · Specialty Museums
Thuringia is a predominantly mountainous and forested region of Germany. Ancient towns and castles that stubbornly refuse to succumb to the ravages of time dot the countryside. Though it remains one of the lesser-known vacation spots among German provinces, Thuringia enjoys a good reputation among domestic visitors. The area attracts travelers with a wide selection of national parks, ski resorts, and an extensive network of hiking trails. Thuringia boasts a proud heritage of athletic achievement; its athletes have won more than half of Germany's Winter Olympic gold medals in the last 20 years. The land is more than just a holiday haven for sports enthusiasts. The region has served as both a home and a source of inspiration for artists such as Bach, Goethe, and Schiller.
