Historic half-timbered town

Situated on the sunny side of the Thuringian Forest, this lovingly restored half-timbered town is a destination for those interested in history, art and nature. The small picturesque squares and alleys, colorfully restored half-timbered houses are historical witnesses of the past, just like the market place with the Stone Bowers, the late gothic hall church St. George’s, and the Luther House, where Martin Luther presented the Schmalkald Articles – and they all invite you to linger. Discover Wilhelmsburg Palace – a Renaissance pearl – towering imposingly over the picturesque Old Town, as well as the confectionery Viba Nougat-World to satisfy those with a sweet tooth.
