"Welcome to Gotha" Gotha by yumyum

Gotha Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 96 photos

I came to Gotha when I travelled 4 days in the area visiting Naumburg, Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Halle.

Gotha was first mentioned in 775 in a document. It is situated in Thuringa and has about 46000 inhabitants.

    The old town of Gotha looks to be a lovely place to walk around in on a sunny summers day.

    people watching + ducks feeding sounds interesting :-))) wow, that Thueringer Rostbratwurst on the picture is very impressive!!! Not for the ducks, I suppose. Thanks for sharing Sonja!

    Gotha certainly looks like a typical old German town.... Great architecture and lots of memorial places... ><><><

    Looks to be a very enjoyable town to visit esp with the lovely water art. That rostbratwurst sure looks delicious and long!

    Interesting tips on all the things I haven't seen in Gotha! I've been there twice, but haven't seen much besides the railroad station and the Adult Education Center. (There's one short tip on my Eisenach page.)

    Schloss Friedenstein and Orangerie are so typical and like all Schlosses in Germany are so attractive! Thuringian roast sausage looks traditionally delicious... Am-am!
