Rudolstadt Travel Guide: 21 reviews and 130 photos

On a wet day in July, we came to Rudolstadt, a beautiful small town at the foot of Heidecksburg Palace in Thuringia.

Located on both sides of the banks of the River Saale, the giant Castle overlook's the Town.

What do you find here?

The fantastic, beautiful, Heidecksburg Palace.....

Porcelain factory...

The first German Open Air Museum.......
I would have gone only for the rain!

Thuringian peasant houses and the historic old town...

Schiller House....

Churches and more!

Famous poets Goethe and Schiller, came from here.

Unfortunately, because of the rain, I wasn't able to walk the Town like I usually do.

Rudolstadt hosts Germany’s biggest folk, roots, and world music festival....

Rudolstadt (Tanz&FolkFest), takes place annually on the first full July
