Excursion tips

NAUMBURG

The historic old city of Naumburg invites you to stroll through its narrow streets (guided tour possible) and will let you feel the spirit of centuries. Your way will inevitably lead you to the famous Naumburg Cathedral, the Cathedral of St Peter & Paul, which has been nominated for the UNESCO World Heritage list, together with the high medieval landscape along the rivers of Saale and Unstrut.

FREYBURG – ROTKÄPPCHEN SPARKLING WINE CELLARS

Tradition and modernity are unified in the listed building of the largest sparkling wine producer in Germany – the Rotkäppchen Sparkling Wine Cellars in Freyburg. After an eventful tour you have an “exciting experience from thousands pearls” and taste a glass of Rotkäppchen sparkling wine. This fits especially our Rotkäppchen offer.

WEIMAR & JENA

Visit Goethe’s & Schiller’s town of Weimar. Exemplary, start with Goethe’s house with the National Museum. During a guided city tour, you will experience classic & contemporary and learn both, science and endearing about Weimar personalities: Goethe, Schiller, Bach, Liszt, Gropius and many more. After this interesting and insightful tour you have time to further explore Weimar on your own.

In contrary to the quiet town of Weimar there is the modern and lively city of Jena. Especially recommended is a visit to the Zeiss Planetarium. First opened in 1926, it is the oldest planetarium in the world. With a completely new, unique in this form, all-dome laser projection entertainment, knowledge transfer is offered in every season. A trip to Jena’s Botanical Garden is always worth it.

Halle

Discover, one of the largest, nearly remained unscathed monuments from war. Explore the hometown and birthplace of George Friedrich Händel. At the market there is his memorial and at St. Mary’s Church you can gaze the “queen of instruments”, on which he once learned to play the organ music. The path also leads to the Cathedral, which was the first domain of the greatest son of the city.

In Halle another highlight is the oldest chocolate factory in Germany, the Halloren
Chocolate Factory. Experience the 200-year-old tradition of chocolate on a tour through the chocolate museum and the Chocolate Factory.
