Thuringia

Getting there & away

Thuringia’s main cities, Erfurt and Weimar, are serviced by daily trains from Berlin, Frankfurt, Dresden and Hanover; contact Deutsche Bahn (118 61 for reservations, 0800-150 7090 for automated timetable information; www.bahn.de) for full details.

If you’re driving, the area’s main arteries are the east–west A4, which runs just south of Erfurt and Weimar (linking Frankfurt and Dresden), and the north–south B4, which skirts Erfurt before heading into the heart of the Thuringian Forest on its way south to Munich. The BerlinMunich A9 cuts through the eastern part of Thuringia.
