Discover the city

We would like to invite you to take a tour of our city. Especially worth seeing are the town museum in the former Franciscan monastery, Park and Villa Bergfried and the four city gates.

Park and Villa Bergfried

On a hill in Saalfeld with a view over the Saale valley, the town and the neighbouring mountains, a spacious villa complex and a park of about 15 hectares were built in the years 1924 - 1930 for the families of the manufacturer of the chocolate factory "Mauxion", Ernst Hüther.

Based on designs by the architect Prof. Max Hans Kühne and in consultation with the probably most important garden architecture firm in Germany at the time, the Ludwig Späth company, an ensemble was created which is one of the most important and beautiful cultural monuments of the 1920s in Thuringia today.

The design highlight of the entire complex is an architecturally designed axis, leading from the ornamental courtyard of the manor house to the pond house via a trimmed, multi-rowed linden avenue. A circular path in the style of an English landscape garden leads around the otherwise extensively modelled and park-like planted grounds.

In 1948, the Hüther were expropriated. From 1949 to 1992, the building was used as a sanatorium by various sponsors. Since 1998, the town of Saalfeld has administered the Bergfried House and Park.

A bell tower was erected on the edge of the slope above the rock garden, lily pond, Japanese garden and bear kennel. Here, the oldest carillon in Germany rings out daily at 12:00 and 18:00. On special occasions it is also played manually.

From April 2021, an exhibition on the villa, park and the life of the Hüther family in the 1920s will open in the former gardener's house.

The Franciscan Monastery - from a holy religious place to a city museum

The Franciscan monastery is home to one of Thuringia's most beautiful museums of urban and cultural history. The Franciscan monks were members of a mendicant order. They were very popular with the citizens of Saalfeld. Not far from the market square, the monastery welcomes you on a journey into the past. An exhibition on the town and regional history from the Stone Age to the 20th century as well as current special exhibitions awaits you on 2,700 m2.

City gates Saalfeld

Even today, you can still find a number of architectural testimonies from different periods in Saalfeld. For example, the city wall with four town gates. Two of these city gates can be visited.

Upper Gate

After many decades in which the city gate could only be visited from the outside, it is now possible to experience an interesting exhibition on the history and architecture.

Join a Nuremberg merchant on his journey along the old trade route and experience the time around 1600. Discover the Stone Chronicle with 3D images from a bird's eye view. The gatekeeper is already waiting for you ...

City Gate “Darrtor“

Of the five former medieval town gates of Saalfeld, the Darrtor holds a special position in the town wall. The gate tower formed the passage to the former village community of “Alter Markt”, which lay directly behind it, i.e. outside the town wall. With a few minutes' walk from Saalfeld's market square you are able to ascent the fourth floor of the town gate, which is worthwhile.

From the platform, visitors can discover something in all directions. The panoramic view reaches over the historic old town and its surroundings to the mountains of the Thuringian Slate Mountains in the south, to the Orlasenke in the east and to the wooded heights of the Heide in the north.

After extensive renovations in the 1990s, the gate tower was opened to visitors. Following the visit to the Darrtor, a gastronomic establishment in the former gatekeeper's cottage invites visitors to enjoy and relax.

Due to the current situation, the gate cannot be visited at the moment!

Healing cave of the Fairy Grottoes

Take a deep breath in the underground healing cave – since 1937

The Heilstollen of the Saalfeld Fairy Grottoes is one of the oldest healing caves in Germany. A visit in the natrule grottes is like a short vacation from everyday life. The absolutely pure air improves respiratory function, strengthens the immune system, calms the soul, and brings people back to themselves and gives them strength - without any negative side effects. Doctors and scientists attribute the effectiveness of the Heilstollen therapy to the particularly favorable climatic conditions in the caves:

- almost completely free of dust, germs, bacteria, allergens, ozone and pollen

- relative air humidity of approximately 98 %

- constant temperatures of 8 to 10 °C

"The unique climate of the Feengrotten healing gallery offers better conditions for a therapeutic effect than the mountain or sea climate."
Volker Bergmann, MD
Specialist for internal medicine and pneumology Rudolstadt, spa doctor in Saalfeld.

2. General information and mandatory information

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration. Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected. We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Feengrottenweg 2
07318 Saalfeld

phone: + 49 (0) 03671-55040
email: datenschutz@feengrotten.de

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries

Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)



Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this information is required to process payments. Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you share with us.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.
