Sightseeing in Eisenach - what to see. Complete travel guide

Happy New Year *Fireworks in Eisenach, 2013* | Frohes Neues Jahr *Feuerwerk in Eisenach, 2013* Not so long ago the city was the "automobile capital" of the GDR. Today you will see the reminders of those times in Automobilbau Museum Eisenach (Automobile Museum), which explosions feature most interesting exhibits, from a small Dixie to the latest model of Wartburg, which have been produced in the city.
However, other attractions of this beautiful city also attract numerous admirers. The name of Martin Luther is closely connected with this city. Moreover, Luther House attracts visitors with its unique beauty that is usual for all stone and wooden architecture of the Middle Ages. Those, who are interested in architecture, will be surely drawn by the "narrow house", the width of which is just 2.05 m. The house features a small collection of antique furniture, sculptures and paintings.
The city surely honors the memory of great men, who have been born and have worked here. The 600-year-old building, where J.S. Bach was born in March 1685, today houses the collection of the museum dedicated to the great composer. The house built in late 19th century hosts the exhibition of the museum of Richard Wagner and the great poet Fritz Reuter. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
The mechanical mentioning of all attractions of Eisenach simply does not make sense. The whole city is a wonderful museum. No matter how much time you have spent in it, you will feel sorry to leave.

On the Market Square, there is the magnificent City Palace built in 1745. It is difficult to imagine that such a beautiful and magnificent building had been built only for three years. Since its construction, the palace remained almost unchangeable. Several years ago, the interesting history museum was opened in it. It is famous for its outstanding collection of pieces of art. Some halls of the old palace are used now for different exhibitions and other cultural events.
Wartburg with snow | Schnee auf der Wartburg *Winter 2012, Eisenach* EXPLORED Near it, there is the City Hall. It is an architectural monument of the earlier period. The City Hall was built in 1596 but didn’t exist even for a hundred years. In 1636, the City Hall was completely ruined in a fire. The new building at its site was built in 1641. The construction was seriously damaged in the period of the Second World War. The City Hall was last reconstructed in 1996.
One of the most beautiful buildings in the city is the Kreuznacher House. This luxurious mansion was built for one of the local merchants in 1539. In the 17th-18th century, the old house belonged to many outstanding owners. Today, it serves as a tourist office.
Wartburg Castle on fire *in Eisenach Thuringia Germany 2012* The amazing Karthaus Park also attracts not only with its nature, but also from the historical point of view. At one time, there was a great monastery in the place where the park is located now. At the beginning of the 18th century, it was decided to make a royal garden here. Then, the monastery was left in disrepair and destroyed. At its site, a wonderful park with branchy trees, flower beds and other decorative elements was made. Today, one of the main attractions in the park is an old indoor gallery. It was planned to create a beautiful resort here. However, this plan hasn’t been executed, as there are precious mineral springs in the park.
It will be very interesting for fans of unusual excursions to visit the old malthouse. It was built in 1873 and used for storing malt that then was delivered to local breweries. Today, this historical building serves as an interesting industrial museum with the collection of exhibits of the 19th centuries. Some part of the historical building is occupied by the International Jazz Archive.
