    With the first written mention in 704 Arnstadt is the city in Thuringia, which has the oldest evidence of its existence and one of the oldest cities in Germany outside the Roman settlement areas. Until the 18th century Arnstadt was a residence of the Counts of Schwarzburg. From Arnstadt the first documented mention of the Thuringian Bratwurst (1404) and the German wheat beer outside of Bavaria (1617). Arnstadt is one of five Thuringian Bach Cities: Johann Sebastian Bach had his first employment as organist at the new church (1703-1707). As early as the 17th century, numerous ancestors of Bach, also called "Bache", were court, council or church musicians (Wikipedia).

    Arnstadt and its surroundings offer hiking, pilgrimage, walking, cycling, horse riding and much more. It is not for nothing that Arnstadt is called the "gateway to the Thuringian Forest". Well-maintained hiking trails in a wonderful landscape await you just a few kilometers from the city gates. From here you can reach many destinations in the area. It is also not far to the foothills of the Thuringian Forest.
