Jena is a town very rich on history and famous for its optical industry.
I believe it is not an unprofessional approach when you want to create a tourist guide and want to visit a place to collect available information and to find people who can help with advise.
I tried to do this when I planned a visit to Jena. I wanted to learn more details about the "Battle of Jena-Auerstedt" where Napoleon defeated the Prussians. Participants from many countries brought this battle back to live.
I was looking for contacts and access to the famous optical museum, the planetarium and other attractions. I needed somebody who was willing to answer my questions.
I had so much on my mind. Unfortunately, I did not get any response or only inadequate answers. For that reason I put this interesting town on the back burner. Please use the official information which exist on the Internet.
For Thuringia this kind of behavior is not unusual. Obviously, former GDR management style is still practised. On the other hand cities like Gera, Weimar and Mühlhausen provided excellent support by providing information, pictures and even free tickets. For that reason I will spend more time in Weimar whenever we visit Thuringia again. They wer very friendly to me.
Unfortunately, I must admit that I found similar behavior also in Ontario.

Jena with the "Jentower" - many thanks to Wikipedia and Henry Mühlpfordt

My advise: The people of Jena should think about out sourcing their town administration.

The so called "Jentower" was built during the communist system and renovated after the unification. Unfortunately was this renovation not without ant flaws. It is now a landmark of the town.

My son and I had a business appointment in the morning in Jena, but because of the insulting "support" we did not stay there. We had guests cards for the "Avenida Therme" and spend instead relaxing hours there.
