Discovering Thuringia, Home to Germany’s Enchanting Christmas Markets - Vogue

Monastery was once home to Martin Luther, Germany’s most famous monk. Don’t forget the Goldhelm Schokoladen Manufaktur and the Viba Confiserie-Café for some local chocolates to take home.In Weimar, Bauhaus students host pop-up marketsAdvertisementDespite Weimar’s smaller population of 65,000, it is a city filled with history—in fact, it’s almost impossible to wander down its cobblestone streets without passing by some sort of important landmark. It is here where the popular German poets Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller lived, as well as the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The much-visited Nietzsche Archive is also located in Weimar, as well as the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, a historic library founded in 1691, containing extensive works from 17th and 18th century. Downtown, there's the world-class Deutsches Nationaltheater and Staatskapelle Weimar, two of Germany’s oldest theatre and orchestra groups. Perhaps most notably of all, serious art and design fans will recognize Weimar as the official birthplace of Bauhaus, the art and design movement that took the 1920s by storm.The Bauhaus school was founded in Weimar in 1919 and gained prominence for its non-traditional approach: students were often left to their own devices, with a focus on hands-on workshops and self-expression. The school ignited a larger revolutionary social and political movement, making the case for streamlining ornate, frivolous design and ramping up mass production. (The school’s unconventional experimentation defied the conservative views of that time period so much so that, following pressure from the Nazis, it was forced to move from Weimar to Dessau in 1925, and then later to Berlin in 1932, before shuttering completely a year later.)Today, the Bauhaus University in Weimar is still very much alive, as is the movement’s enduring legacy. Over 4,000 students a year enroll in programs such as carpentry, ceramics, photography, and more. Inside, the signature Bauhaus aesthetic is present: classrooms-slash-studios are flanked by giant bright windows, a stairwell is painted with a mural by iconic painter and former student...https://www.vogue.com/article/touring-germanys-christmas-markets

More modern is the Ega Park, which has the largest flower bed with ornamental flowers in the whole of Europe. There are Bauhaus design buildings here, but to find out more about this go on to...Weimar This is the centre of culture, democracy, literature, and also where the notorious Buchenwald concentration camp is. After World War I, the great desire for change resulted in the first German democracy being started here. Also, the Bauhaus school of modernism (still modern today) created a way of thinking for artists, designers, architects and technicians to work together to create an all-embracing way of making things.The Anna Amalia library in Weimar.It all started here and there is much to see, including the brand new museum opening this year. Haus am Horn, the first house built to Bauhaus principles, is here, and homes of Goethe, Liszt, Schiller and many others are open for you to explore. There is also the Duchess Anna Amalia library with more than a million books. Each October they hold an onion fair, elect an onion queen, and eat loads of dishes all full of onions! Eisenach Towering over the town is Wartburg Castle (the most German of castles, it is said) where Martin Luther translated the Bible into German. In the town there is the ancient Martin Luther house, and Bach’s house and museum.JS Bach’s house in the centre of Eisenach.It is a great town for inspiring musicians – Richard Wagner composed Tanhauser here. It has also produced cars for over 100 years, (Wartburg cars came from here amongst many others) and there is a museum of car manufacture. There is lots to see and many events held here throughout the year.A well cared for Wartburg car in Muhlhausen.Meiningen When you leave the railway station you immediately walk into the formal “Englisher Garten” with old ruins, trees, lawns, a lake with fountain and peace. This little town is a gem. It has a castle, which is a sprawl of a building, ornamental, not military at all. There is an important theatre with concerts, plays, opera, and performances throughout the year.Just one of the many lovely old buildings in Meiningen.The town is also famous for the railway workshop here. German railways kept steam locomotives going longer than us, and so the workshop kept the skills to serve them. Today it has an order book as long as your arm, repairing and building steam locomotives for the world. It can be visited too.Meiningen also claims to be ...https://www.inverness-courier.co.uk/lifestyle/culture-castles-and-kilometres-of-trails-in-german-state-181187/

Germany's Thuringia Seeks to Awaken Its “Sleeping Beauty” - Travel Agent

Sunday, March 3, 2019

German guests since the nations 1990 reunification. Starting with this years eventful German Travel Mart, hosted during Aprils final days in the cities of Erfurt and Weimar, the German National Tourist Board and the Thuringia Tourist Board have served notice they are on a mission to attract the international market, including Americans, to their hidden gem.The regions modern tourism handicap is rooted in 1945s World War II geopolitical outcome. The allied division of the eastern side of Germany put postwar Bavaria under American control and its northerly neighbor Thuringia in Russian territory. Thuringia and four other eastern states fell into the German Democratic Republic (GDR), under which Thuringian students were required to study Russian instead of the English taught and widely spoken in postwar western Germany. After 40 years behind the Iron Curtain it is not easy for a [region] to catch up. We are the Sleeping Beauty, said Barbel Gronegres, the managing director of Thuringia Tourism to the assembled press corps at the 41st German Travel Mart in Thuringias capital city of Erfurt last month. In an engaging jab at neighboring Bavaria, and its wildly-popular Sleeping Beauty castle in Neuschwanstein, Gronegres noted that King Ludwig II was inspired to construct his 19th century palace after first visiting Thuringias 12th-century Wartburg castle in Eisenach.

Germany's churches warn against upsurge in racism

Thursday, September 13, 2018

Bavaria and Hesse. The head of Germans lay people Catholics did not hesitate to draw a parallel with the Nazi Party, which came to power by the ballot in the last phase of the Weimar Republic. While denouncing the demonization of immigration, Thomas Sternberg also recognized the need to set economic, social and societal limits for immigration. Exploring these limits, particularly to be able to ensure the necessary protection for those who need it, is an enormous challenge for our society, Sternberg said, wondering at the reasons why some Germans felt abandoned. However, he added: I think a democratic state can overcome all that. Dignity at the heart of social consensus In late August, at the heart of the Chemnitz riots, the president of the Council of the Protestant Church in Germany, Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, also warned German voters against the AfD. Those who vote for the AfD need to know that they are giving legitimacy to forces that go all the way to the extreme right and which use Nazi slogans, he said. Repositioning human dignity at the heart of the social consensus, the head of Germanys Protestants urged those who see themselves as Christians to seize the opportunity of the upcoming elections to send a clear signal against such slogans. https://international.la-croix.com/news/germanys-churches-warn-against-upsurge-in-racism/8381

The state of Thuringia is in the very heart of Germany. It is packed with forests, more than 450 castles and fortresses, 16,000 kilometres of marked hiking trails, 1700 kilometres of cycling trails, loads of breweries, and its speciality is a sausage about 35cm long!With these credentials it is a great place to explore, and here are some of the delightful towns to see.The magnificent town hall of Erfurt, with replacement statues for the originals stolen at the end of the war.Erfurt This is the capital. It is around 1260 years old so has loads of old buildings, including a medieval bridge, 125 metres long with 35 houses built on it, the longest in Europe that still has people living on it as well as shops.Nearby is the Late Synagogue Museum, recalling the times of the Nazi era. There are two huge churches on a ridge dominating the market square. St Mary’s cathedral and St Severus church are angled slightly away from one another, leaving a massive triangular staircase to connect with the square below...https://www.inverness-courier.co.uk/lifestyle/culture-castles-and-kilometres-of-trails-in-german-state-181187/

Discovering Thuringia, Home to Germany’s Enchanting Christmas Markets - Vogue

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

First-time travelers to Germany may flock to the livelier hubs that are Berlin, Frankfurt, or Munich—but hidden from the crowds in the middle of the country is Thuringia, one of Germany’s smaller states. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in a high number of historical landmarks and figures: it is where the composer Johann Sebastian Bach was born, where poets Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller lived and developed their craft, and where the Bauhaus art and design movement was first ignited. It is also home to over 400 different castles and palaces, all of which are anchored by the scenic Thuringian Forest that holds a variety of different hiking trails.Visit Thuringia in December, though, and it really comes alive: it happens to hold some of the best Christmas markets in the world. (We’re talking next-level, capital-F festive, seriously postcard-worthy Christmas markets.) Every holiday season, communities across the state set up enchanting booths filled with plenty of local crafts, food, and wine. They are usually erected in the cities’ main marktplatz, though some of them spread their markets out across town, or even host t...https://www.vogue.com/article/touring-germanys-christmas-markets

How the Alternative for Germany Has Transformed the Country

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Left Party. The unrest in Chemnitz in August marked a turning point for the AfD. There, the party joined a phalanx of agitators and neo-Nazis, with the AfD's Thuringia state chapter leader Björn Höcke marching side-by-side with an activist from Pegida -- the anti-Islam and anti-immigrant group -- who has multiple criminal convictions on his record. For years, politics in Germany had been shaped by the old polarity between left and right. But those days are over. The question of identity now seems to be more important, which seemingly scrambles the party system. Sahra Wagenknecht of the Left Party is creating a new movement called "Aufstehen," German for "Stand Up," that she hopes will be a magnet for voters who would like to see a bigger welfare state and fewer immigrants. The move places additional pressure on the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), which has fluctuated between a culture of welcoming refugees and warnings of a loss of control since the refugee crisis. The business-friendly Free Democratic Party (FDP), meanwhile, has morphed into a law and order party. And the only thing still holding the CDU and Christian Social Union (CSU), the CDU's Bavarian sister party, together is the fear of losing power. The only parties that seem to be profiting from the new political complexities are the Greens and the AfD. So, how to deal with a party that fulminates against the mainstream with such abandon while at the spreading its own tentacles further into the center of society, into gov...http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/how-the-alternative-for-germany-has-transformed-the-country-a-1227360.html
