Castle/palace/World heritage site

The Wartburg is a castle originally built in the Middle Ages, situated on a 410 metres (1,350 ft) precipice to the southwest of, and overlooking the town of Eisenach Wikipedia Icon, in the state of Thuringia, Germany. In 1999, UNESCO added Wartburg Castle to the World Heritage List.

It was the home of St. Elisabeth of Hungary, the place where Martin Luther translated the New Testament of the Bible into German, the site of the Wartburg festival of 1817 and the supposed setting for the legendary Sängerkrieg. Although the castle today still contains substantial original structures from the 12th through 15th centuries, much of the interior dates back only to the 19th-century period of Romanticism.

Wartburg is a popular tourist destination, the most-visited site in Thuringia after Weimar Wikipedia Icon. It is accessible to visitors and guided tours offer access to the interior of the buildings. In addition, there is a museum in the castle. The Festssal is used regularly for staging the opera Tannhäuser, as well as concerts and other events. There is also a hotel, located right next to the castle, originally built during the castle's reconstruction in the 19th century.
