The fairy grotto town on the river Saale

Idyllically situated in the picturesque Saale valley on the edge of the Thuringian Slate Mountains, Saalfeld with its 1,100-years of history is one of the oldest towns in Thuringia. That the city of fairy grottos has a lot to offer is already revealed by its nickname "Stone Chronicle of Thuringia". On a stroll through the city center there is much to be discovered, including the Renaissance Town Hall, the Hoher Schwarm castle ruins, the four city gates, St. John's Church and the city museum in the former Franciscan monastery, all of which are particularly worth seeing.
