“The region is more than magnificent” – that’s how Goethe described the landscape surrounding Eisenach. Thanks to world-famous figures, both the city and Wartburg Castle have become famous. At Wartburg Castle – UNESCO World Heritage – Saint Elisabeth spent part of her life, Martin Luther translated the New Testament, and Richard Wagner was inspired to write his opera “Tannhäuser”. Eisenach is Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthplace, Martin Luther attended Latin school here for three years, and Fritz Reuter spent the last years of his life here. For the past 120 years, this is also where automobile manufacturing and development have become a tradition.
