Wartburg Castle

This impressive castle sits in splendour on a sheer and narrow rocky outcrop overlooking the town. One of the most famous and most popular of Germany's castles, it is closely associated with the Reformation - this is where Martin Luther translated the New Testament into German.

Steeped in German culture and history
Wartburg Castle sits in splendour high above Eisenach on the north-west edge of the Thuringian Forest. It is more closely associated with German history than any other castle in Germany. Saint Elisabeth lived and worked within its walls, and Martin Luther translated the New Testament into German here. The castle is also linked to the Battle of the Bards and the gathering of the student fraternities in 1817. An outstanding monument that dates back to feudal times in central Europe, the castle has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
