A major centre of German culture, Luther's "beloved town" was also the birthplace of the genius Bach, born in a modest house in the historic centre. Dominating the town and its picturesque alleyways from the top of its rocky outcrop, Wartburg Castle was once the site of the famous poetic jousts between troubadours. This national monument, where Luther found refuge and Wager the inspiration for his Tannhäuser, draws almost 400 000 visitors a year.
