Rhön Things to Do: 29 reviews and 68 photos
The Wartburg Castle near Eisenach in Thurgia, was added in 1999 to the World Cultural Heritage List as 'an excellent landmark of the Feudal Epoch in Middle Europe'. It is 'linked to cultural values of universal meaning'. Martin Luther translated the New Testament here. The Wartburg Castle is also associated with the Singers? War, St. Elizabeth and the Young Patriots (Burschenschaften) 300 years after the Reformation. Because of it?s location on the former East/West German Border, the Wartburg Castle was always a symbol for German Integration and Unity.
?In the Wartburg Germany perceives the wonderful legend that it possesses a history, and a literature, heroes and poets?. That is the ?conquest? of the middle ages with the idealism of the romantic period. That is the Wartburg.
