Thuringia’s world heritage attracts visitors

Evidence of unique culture and a primeval forest in the heart of Germany – Thuringia’s UNESCO sites tell exciting and moving stories. Martin Luther translated the New Testament at Wartburg Castle in Eisenach, the Classical Weimar and Bauhaus ensembles in Weimar span the Middle Ages to the modern age, and nature is still allowed to be nature in Hainich National Park. Erfurt preserves particularly valuable evidence of Jewish life and has set out to enrich the World Heritage List.

Weimar is a true cultural universe and arguably the UNESCO city in Germany: It is home to no fewer than 19 World Heritage sites. They include classics such as Goethe and Schiller’s homes or the French-style Belvedere summer residence on the outskirts of the city. However, the Bauhaus ensemble will take center stage in 2023 when a pioneering modernist project turns 100. To mark the centennial of the “Haus am Horn,” Weimar will be exploring the question of “How will we live?” this year. There are answers aplenty in numerous exhibitions, including the Bauhaus Museum Weimar, the Nietzsche Archive or the Museum Neues Weimar. Thuringia is a world heritage state! It is home to culture and nature, history and traditions, experiences and inspirations. Time for an expedition! (Martina Maaß, Thüringer Tourismus GmbH)
