Thuringia is known as a land of poets and thinkers. Thanks to historical personalities such as Goethe, Schiller, Luther and Bach, the castles and palaces, historic city centers and historic places, Thuringia is always worth a cultural journey of discovery. With its more than 1300 years of history, Arnstadt is not only the oldest city in Thuringia, but also the home of the young Johann Sebastian Bach. In his honor, the city organizes great festivals and music festivals at which artists from all over the world perform the music of the world-famous composer.
The city also looks back with pride on a long beer and brewing tradition. According to traditional sources, Arnstadt is the place where wheat beer was probably brewed for the first time. The Stadtbrauerei, which belongs to the Hotelpark Arnstadt, produces its highly praised beers according to the traditional Thuringian brewing art.
