About the city

Blankenhain is a charming little town surrounded by forests, meadows, and rolling countryside. The city lies between Weimar and Rudolstadt and is one of the largest settlements in Thuringia. In the Middle Ages, Blankenhain was a well-fortified city with a wall, moat, rampart, and thick hedgerows. Walls 4 to 5 m high guarded nine ponds.

Numerous lime trees have been a hallmark of the city since Blankenhain was first mentioned in a document in 1252. Blankenhain Castle, in its new look, is an event venue in the center of a small town and a place for fairy tales and stories that are loved to be told here. In addition, the city is known for its golf course on its outskirts, which is stylishly integrated into the natural environment and is a place of excellence.

The rivers Ilm and Saale form the landscape around the city, surrounded by dense and picturesque forests. Blankensein hosts a series of unique Thuringian hiking trails. One of them is the Goethe Trail of Experience, which follows the trail of love straight from Saalfeld-Rudolstadt to the Kochberg castle, home of Charlotte von Stein. Tourists who prefer a more relaxed pace can also choose the Beer and Castle Road or the Thuringian Porcelain Road, which pass through Blankenhain. Another reason to visit the city is the Academic Hospital Helios Blankenhain. The specialized clinic provides first-class medical services for regional residents and beyond.
