Thuringian bratwurst

Enjoy Thuringia's finest bratwurst sausages, grilled the traditional way, at the sausage stand right next to the Wartburg Castle visitor car park. They are best enjoyed in a freshly baked bread roll with Thuringian mustard.

Burgcafé Gadem

Walther von der Vogelweide already sang the praises of the great hospitality of Landgrave Hermann von Thüringen in his songs. Countless Wartburg ramblers have stopped off here at the taproom of the noble residence since that time. The castle café takes up this tradition today. Enjoy the unique Wartburg gateau, Wartburg ice-cream and our many coffee specialties. In the evening hours the Wartburg, well away from the streams of tourists, has its own very special charm. At Gadem, we organise festivities, both large and small, exclusively for you. Enjoy having the Wartburg completely to yourselves!
