Wartburg Castle reviews
The Wartburg offers that mediaval feeling. Luther himself was hiding here when he was translating the bible. The way up to the castle is spectacular so don't go by car...

It's a really impressive castle. This castle, where Luther was in exile for 10 months, is one of the most beautiful castles in Germany. It has a history of at least 1000 years and St. Fabulous to see Elizabeth's story on the spot.
Beautiful castle that has a great deal of history and consideration. I have visited about half a dozen castles in the UK but this by far exceeds them in its restoration quality as well as it's views. The information is in German and English, there are restaurants on site and they have materials in many languages for reading about the castle (although again only German and English in the exhibitions).
Fabulous mountain top situation. They keep improving the experience. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, easy to understand, spoke loudly. Amazing Castle history with the Martin Luther connection at the end.
if you want to enter inside of castle and museum, you should buy ticket online from website in advance. Then you can have nice experience in the castle. you need 20 mins walk from car parking btw due to a steep slope, so plan your travel schedule including this.
If I could only give it 10 stars, this castle absolutely deserves it. We had issues getting the English translation to work but I can’t penalize the castle for that. Great condition and care go into this place.
