"The castle in Germany's beautiful centre"
Our guests rate us
Wartburg Castle towers majestically high above the city of Eisenach: Opened more than 100 years ago as a "Gasthof für fröhliche Leut" (inn for happy people) at the foot of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the five-star hotel is considered a place of well-being, peace and serenity. Individually designed rooms, the excellent cuisine, the historic Wappensaal for meetings and festivities and a magnificent view will enchant you.
As passionate hosts, Hannes Horsch and his team ensure a real feel-good factor with a personal and relaxed atmosphere. The thoroughbred hotelier has close ties to the region and has been managing the 5-star hotel high above the Thuringian Forest since 2019. In addition to first-class cuisine and attentive service for his guests, the trusting cooperation with the Wartburg Foundation as well as with his team is also close to his heart. "The guests feel directly how harmoniously we all work together."

Pleasure and culture at the Wartburg
Cultural activities at the Wartburg Hotel
Whether classical concert evenings, theatre or cabaret - enjoy the great events at the Wartburg.
At Wartburg Castle, history is everywhere. Annett Reinhardt, the head chef of the Landgrafenküche, researched old chronicles and today combines historically handed-down banquets with her modern kitchen philosophy. On the menu, for example, is a classic Wartburg menu that was first served on 6 October 1896.
Original flavours, the simplicity of the recipe and the best organic quality - these are the standards of Annett Reinhardt's Landgrafen cuisine. She combines the philosophy and history of the house with contemporary culinary art. But as a guest, you will not only enjoy first-class culinary specialities, but also a unique ambience. From the glazed Landgrafen terrace you have a breathtaking view over the Thuringian Forest!
Walther von der Vogelweide already praised the great hospitality of Landgrave Hermann von Thüringen. Since that time, countless Wartburg hikers have stopped here in the taproom of the knight's house. The historic Castle Café Gadem continues this tradition today. Enjoy, for example, the unique Wartburg cake made to our own recipe or savoury snacks. Our innkeeper Michael Jäckel and his team warmly welcome you!
