What to visit in Saalfeld area in Germany?

Saalfeld sits plum in the Saale River Valley. Home to nearly 30,000 townsfolk, Saalfeld's origins date back to the 7th century. In addition to historical sights of interest, Saalfeld is endowed with rich natural beauty that makes it inviting and worth exploring to a variety of tourists.

For those arriving into the region by train, Saalfeld is conveniently located on the Intercity Express train line that runs between Berlin in the North and Munich in the South. However, given the region's rolling sights, Saalfeld is best explored at leisure. Car rental options are many. Cars can be rented from most airports, major train stations, as well different locations around the city.

However, if you would like to be guaranteed a vehicle during your trip in Saalfeld, you can use the convenience of booking your rental car online from Sixt! This is a fairly straightforward process, quite like in the United States. Once you arrive in Saalfeld, you can head over and pick up your rental vehicle from the car rental station. Your car hire process cannot be completed unless you provide a valid driver's license, passport, and a major credit card that is accepted by the car rental company. As always, insurance coverage for rental cars should be considered. Check with your own auto insurance or your credit card company to see if they automatically offer coverage when you are driving a rental car.

Some of the sights worth visiting in Saalfeld are:
1. The City Museum: Housed in the Franciscan monastery built in 1250, the City Museum is a journey through the early history of the Franciscans. The museum also displays Thuringian art, folklore, furniture, textiles, coins, and religious art from different periods in the history of the region.

2. The Saalfeld Fairy Grottoes: Billed the most colorful grottoes in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records, these caves give a glimpse of mining in the Middle Ages.

3. River Wanderings: Take a leisurely stroll along the River Saale or rent a canoe and explore further across its inviting waters.

4. Bicycle Explorations: Take in mountains, forests, river, and valley all at once on one of the most popular 55 km Saale Cycle Path which gives nature enthusiasts a taste of Bavaria, Thuringia, and Saxony-Anhalt. If that's too much, simply go as far as you wish.

5. Darrtor: This is one of the five former medieval city gates of Saalfeld. The tower platform offers sweeping views of the city and its surroundings.
