Have a look at our new dining room set:
I kid, I kid. We spent a wonderful day in Eisenach this weekend visiting Wartburg castle, the place where Martin Luther spent 10 months of protective captivity (and where he translated the New Testament from Greek into German, in addition to 14 further theological texts, just to keep busy, ya know.)
Wartburg castle itself was first mentioned in official documents of the time in 1080, but apparently the first buildings on this site were erected as early as 1067.
Stunning valley views? Oh yeah. Unsurprisingly, hilltop locations with surrounding forest, valleys and ravines provided strategic protection against advancing foes. It also means that modern day visitors can get their exercise for the day in by trecking 30 minutes through the woods and up the hill to reach the castle.
If you ever find yourself in Thuringia, make sure not to miss the Wartburg.We’ll be back to Eisenach in the near future to check out Bach’s house.
