Wartburg Castle is the first castle in Germany to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built during the feudal period in the 12th century overlooking the land around it from atop a hill.

Filled with all kinds of art, visitors are taken back in time to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Reformation periods. Martin Luther, who ignited the Protestant Reformation, stayed at the Wartburg Castle when translating the New Testament so that Germans could read it.

Located in the beautiful countryside and surrounded by the forest, the castle is a great place to visit that is full of history.
