Often referred to as Germany’s green heart, Thuringia is home to large areas of forest where slow travel was championed long before it become trendy in the 21st century. However, this nickname skims over the fact that such a small state is littered with cultural hotspots that have all seen influential figures drift through and leave their mark. It really is interesting to see so many art, literature and musical roots in such a relatively small region.
Whilst much of the state is worth your time if you have it to spare, the leading lights are Erfurt and Weimar. The former, the state capital, is a beautiful medieval town bearing the legacy of Martin Luther and the reformation, whilst the latter was once Goethe’s playground and a focal point for the German Enlightenment.
