Eichsfeld District — Interesting And Historic

At the southern limits of the great Harz mountain chain that crosses central Germany sits the historic Eichsfeld District. Although now at the most northern edge of the modern state of Thuringia, it is part of the larger, more ancient land of Eichsfeld, once ruled by the Archbishop of Mainz.

Its name means The Land Of Oaks and there are certainly some great areas of forest still in existence across the region.

The Naturpark Eichsfeld-Hainich-Werratal sits along its southern border, and the Naturpark Hann-Münden joins this in the east in the direction of Kassel in neighboring Hesse. In fact these areas almost encircle half of the modern Eichsfeld District.

The capital Heilbad Heiligenstadt has been a popular destination for its brine spas since the 10th century, and is believed to be situated in the geographical center of entire Germany!

So, whether you travel here for the amazing scenery, or for its historical past — you won’t be disappointed.
