    The Wartburg is a castle in Thuringia, located above the city of Eisenach at the northwestern end of the Thuringian Forest, 411 m above sea level. NN. It was founded around 1067 by Ludwig the Springer and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
    The name means waiting, so guard, guard castle. The district of Eisenach called Wartha has no connection to the Wartburg.
    Today's Wartburg was largely rebuilt in the 19th century, including less well-preserved parts. The present appearance of the Wartburg and its landscape park goes back to the Grand Duke Carl Alexander of Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach.

    Nice view, great castle and well mobile way up that is not too difficult. A little crowded on weekends. Take the small unpaved whale path down if necessary. Is on the left about 150 meters after Burg on the way down. But be careful: there are a few stairs.

    The Wartburg - World Heritage Site from Thuringia.
    A challenge for cyclists. It rises sharply, but the effort is absolutely worth it!
