E is an important Luther city for several reasons:
Still, Martin Luther isn't the only historical figure whose name brings tourists and pilgrims to Eisenach. The city was also the birthplace of , and the Bachhaus Eisenach is a "must see" museum for anyone who appreciates the great composer's works.
Eisenach is an attractive small city of 43,000 inhabitants with a well-preserved Old Town, a hugely popular festival before Easter, a medieval-themed in August (finances permitting), and plenty of sightseeing opportunities to keep visitors occupied at any time of year.
How long to visit:
We recommend spending at least two nights in Eisenach, which will give you time to walk around the center and visit some of the most popular local attractions: the Georgenkirche (where the Bach family were organists), Wartburg Castle, the Luther House, and the Bach House.
If you can stay three nights or longer, you'll get even more out of your visit.
