We would like to wish you a very warm welcome to Saalfeld; the “Fairy-Grotto Town”!
The historic town on the banks of the river Saale is also known as Thuringia’s “Chronicle in Stone “, because here you can discover buildings from many past eras that are still standing today.
It is actually the Fairy Grottos that have given the town its worldwide fame. They have been described in the Guiness Book of Records as “the most colourful grottos in the world“, and in addition to their natural beauty, the Fairy Grottos are also a legacy of the medieval mining activity that was undertaken in the region.
We would now like to invite you to take a tour of our town.
