The Schmalkalden-Meiningen Region borders to Suhl. Please enlarge above Google map to explore the area.
Meiningen is not a big town but it offers very much. Please check our web site. in our travel guide and if you got there visit a tourist office.
Meiningen is a well known theater town. Sometimes they play also musicals. My son loves to see their performances.

"Schloss Landsberg" a fairy tale castle. Many thanks to "Meininger Hotels mit Flair GmbH"
You will find it north of Meinigen on the L1124.

A beautiful fairy tale castle, called "Schloss Landsberg" is located very close to Meiningen. It as another place where you can stay if you enjoy medieval surroundings and are willing to climb stairs to you rooms. Elevators could not be installed everywhere!
I dragged my son to this place and we enjoyed a delicious snack in the garden restaurant. A snack consists for me most the time of a nice bowl of ice cream with fruits and eventually some liqueur.
We watched workers erecting a tend for a big wedding party. Being able to have such a wedding is certainly a live long memory of this great day.
I must show this place to Elizabeth. If we come back. We may be able to celebrate our wedding anniversary without over spending. Not more than four people!
If you go there, please give us some feed back by e-mail.
I think it is a very romantic place to stay for a few days to explore the surroundings.
This beautiful fairy tale castle is really worth a visit - even when you only come for a snack or a delicious meal and sightseeing.
The prices seemed to be very fair, especially when you know how much certain B & B places charge in North America when they only offer some antique furnishing!

Enjoy little scenes like this one in Meiningen, spend an Euro

Schmalkalden became one of our favorite places to visit. We always stopped here when this town was on the way during one of our tours.
Even I enjoyed the pedestrian zone were no private cars are allowed. As you can see live came back and people enjoy shopping there. We always relaxed in a restaurant or a coffee shop on an outdoor table.
We found parking close by and when you use a parking disk it is often free for two hours. You should find such a disk in your rental car.

Elizabeth never got tired to explore places like Schmalkalden. Just visit our web site to see what she discovered. Even a skeleton in an old burial ground.
She talked to the owners of little stores and improved her German by having fun. She never got lost.
She went into churches, admired the historical half timbered buildings which were nicely renovated. People lived still in downtown and filled it with live. Older and younger people loved it here.
We loved the chocolate which is manufactured here in Schmalkalden. Elizabeth always walked to a store in Suhl which carried only these products.
When we stayed with my son in Suhl, we did not only drink beer. Our favorite pop was called "Thüringer Waldquell" and it came also from Schmalkalden. I wish we could get it in Canada, it is not so terrible sweet, especially their cola, and the diet fruit pop is delicious. Please try it and judge.
To survive as a smaller company you must have either a better product or must sell it for less money. I prefer the better quality!

Please visit also Oberhof in the Schmalkalden-Meiningen Region. Oberhof is very famous for sports events and it is beautifully located. We did not spend too much time there because I did not like how we were treated in the tourist office.
I hope that in the meantime the mandatory changes have taken place. The attractive looking spa went into bankruptcy as one of the results of arrogance and poor management. I think the people and the business of Oberhof and the German tax payers deserve something better!
