You know, some folks like it warm and sunny, others like it gray, dreary, foggy, and drab. If you’re the type that gets upset when you go to London and it’s raining, Teutschenthal is just right for you, because it receives very little rainfall.
Chances are the bright sunshine will be waiting for you when you arrive in Teutschenthal.
Rain or shine though, the sites in town remain the same. What’s to see, then?
Well, you have the lovely Castle Teutschenthal and the late 15th century St. Lawrence Church. These old birds are really fantastic if you want a look at medieval art and architecture — there’s something really romantic about old stone churches, don’t you agree?
But, the oldest church in town is St. Vitus. It was built in 1129 with some Gothic additions made in 1675. There’s also the Rittergut Würdenburg, a manor house that’s actually a castle. If you want to stay in a Schloss you can, there’s a Castle Hotel in town; and no noble lineage is required to stay here.
In Teutschenthal you can go from the historic to the modern in a matter of minutes. The town is famous for its motorcross races and World Championships. If you don’t mind packing on a helmet and some pads, try the dirt track slopes and let it rip!
For something of a slower pace, then shopping at the obligatory Christmas Market (while drinking some mulled wine) would work. Linger around for a while, the town usually has concerts going on around to keep shoppers entertained.
The warmer weather (and all that sunshine) is great for enjoying the nearby swimming lake in Seegebiet Mansfelder Land. So much of Germany is family-friendly and that area really fits the bill.
You sun worshippers are going to love it here. The rest of you will like it, too. Just remember to bring some really dark sunglasses… ;-)
