Fresh, modern, digital and 100% inspiring.
What a fabulous setting!
Towering trees reach for the sky and, depending on the time of day, there’s a sliver of morning light, midday sun or evening sunset. Discover Thuringia’s natural beauty in our virtual forest clearing, the Lichtung room, where the KUKA robot arm hovers over a three-dimensional map of Thuringia, ready to provide inspiration for your visit. Take your time to meet six Thuringian locals who show you their favourite places and whisk you away on their personal journeys through the region in short films.
Sit down for a bit
and let your gaze wander slowly around the Weitblick, or panorama, room. You may well recognize the landmarks that frame this space in plain silhouette. The peace and quiet is broken as soon as you put on the headset and embark on your journey, from Wartburg Castle through the Dragon’s Gorge into the Duchess Anna Amalia Library and up to the peaks of the Thuringian Forest. One minute, stars are twinkling at you in Jena’s Zeiss Planetarium, the next you find yourself at the Cathedral Steps Theatre Festival in Erfurt. Through the magic of virtual reality, you become part of the film and discover memorable sights and vistas.
A friendly chat
can replace many a long-winded search on Google. As ambassadors of Thuringia, we know our way around the region. And if we really don’t know the answer to your question, we’re sure to have an idea where you can find it. In the Gute Rat (good advice) room, you can purchase tickets for everything from the biathlon to the Zughafen event venue, and also find the perfect souvenir of your visit to Thuringia. Because we know how handy it is to have easy access to Wi-Fi or a power socket, we provide both free of charge. And if you’re looking for more ‘traditional’ reading material for your onward journey or your return visit, we can offer that too.
