The Thuringian Forest is a paradise for walkers and a popular holiday destination all year round. Thuringia is also closely associated with famous intellectuals, writers and painters, and has plenty to offer culture lovers.

As the setting for many important events in the history of art and literature, Thuringia still has strong connections with figures such as Goethe, Schiller, Luther and Bach. The countryside is natural and unspoilt - ideal for health and fitness breaks. The health resort of Bad Salzungen is known for its historical salt evaporation works, where salt was extracted from salt water trickling down enormous brushwood walls.
Nowadays it is a huge facility where spa visitors can take inhalation treatments and swim in modern saline pools. Experience the charms of this medieval town and enjoy walks in the surrounding forests.
