Tel: (0)3691-797-223, Fax: (0)3691-797-200
Luxury and attention from the moment you arrive, this hotel is built right into part of the Wartburg, Germany’s most legendary castle. A worthwhile splurge for those who have always dreamed of sleeping in a castle. Rooms and bathrooms have maintained a 1930's feel, but are completely modern and up-to-date.
You'll need a car, since the castle is isolated and high on a hill, but this is part of the attraction. Many rooms have gorgeous views out onto the Thüringian Forest. There's no elevator, so expect stairs, but staff will handle your luggage.
Singles: €190, Doubles: €250 to €320, Triples: €275 to €355
Credit Cards: All major credit cards accepted.
Hotel Style: Castle; 53 Rooms

The house where JS Bach was born in Eisenach, Germany offers a fabulous look at the life, music and thoughts of this composer. Mozart may have been a prodigy, but Bach was a genius. And a determined little fella. Orphaned at the age of 10, when he was 15 he walked 200 miles across Germany to attend a choral school that accepted poor children.
