    If you could talk, the old Werra Bridge would be able to tell a lot of history. Some sad, but also one or the other very funny.
    For example, those of the canoeists, who ran shortly after the bridge in the direction of Mihla on a sandbank and wanted to regain their freedom with simultaneous, hoppsenden movements in the boat .... which then at some point worked.
    Was not so funny in the boat, but more so from the bridge!
    In addition to the Werra, the small chapel, the canoe station and, of course, the magnificent Creuzburg are on view, with regular weddings, medieval markets and concerts.

    Very beautiful city with many interesting places (castle Creuzburg, market square, stone bridge over the Werra) and good starting point for cycling and hiking tours.

    The castle was built from 1165 to 1170 on behalf of Landgrave Ludwig II - according to tradition at the site of an older fortified monastery complex, to whose replacement about 1173 the St. Jacob's Monastery was donated. This construction phase corresponded to the type of a Romanesque Ringmauer castle. From this time the ring wall, the tower house with Elisabethkemenate and parts of the Palas remained preserved.The castle was intended as a fortress north of Eisenach to protect the landgrave possessions, the 1213 founded city of Creuzburg and the local Werra bridge. It flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries, when it was one of the ancillary residences of the Landgraves of Thuringia.In this time she had to survive two heavy sieges: 1260 in the course of the Thuringian War of Succession succeeded the troops of Sophie of Brabant, the city
    to take temporarily.
