Choir Tour | Orchestra Tour to:
THE WARTBURG – the stone document of German history
According to legend, the Wartburg was founded in 1067. In 1521, Luther translated the New Testament into German . In 1777, Goethe first visited the Wartburg and forty years later, the Wartburg Festival of Student Fraternities took place here – the first democratic assembly in German history.
EISENACH – the birthplace of Johann Sebastian Bach
Worth visiting in the pretty town of Eisenach is the baroque city castle in the market with
the Luther Memorial and the Church of St. George, where Johann Sebastian Bach was baptised. Here, one can only agree with Goethe’s verdict: “The area is simply magnificent!”
WEIMAR – place of activity of Goethe and Schiller
The spirit of the great poets comes alive here. In Goethe’s house “Am Frauenplan”, in his idyllic garden house, in Schiller’s residence, in the Herder Church and in the “German National Theatre”. Many of Schiller’s plays were premiered in this European Capital of Culture, Liszt and Richard Strauss conducted the orchestra. Today, four million tourists enjoy the city each year.
ERFURT – state capital of Thüringen
Erfurt’s landmark, the Church Ensemble on the Cathedral Square, towers majestically above
the city. Past the imposing city hall, one arrives at a further city landmark, the Krämerbrücke. The arched stone bridge is the only inhabited bridge north of the Alps.
