For centuries Wartburg has been a place of pilgrimage for those paying homage to Martin Luther.
If you would like to stay on the castle grounds, the Hotel auf der Wartburg lies right next to the historic wall. It’s a 400-meter climb from the car park down below, but the hotel operates a free shuttle.
This five-star hotel is loaded with ambience; service is friendly and efficient.
Guest rooms vary in size, with some being on the small side. Furnishings are simple but comfortable. Views from the windows look over the forest, Wartburg Castle, or Eisenach. The room mini-bar is complimentary. Be aware the hotel has no elevator.
The hotel offers elegant gourmet dining in the Landgrafenstube restaurant.
Wartburg is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Concerts are held in the complex.
