Experience the fascination of Paulinzella, a small village in the heart of the Thuringian Forest.

The Benedictine nuns founded the Paulinzella monastery here in 1102, which was dissolved during the Reformation in 1542. Today, a small hunting lodge of the princes of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt on the former monastery grounds serves as a reminder of the village's eventful history.

As early as the 19th century, the famous poet Friedrich Schiller visited Paulinzella and recognized the beauty and grandeur of the Romanesque ruins. Later, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe also became interested in the village and visited it in 1817. In his diary, he wrote enthusiastically: "After forty years of wandering through Thuringia by carriage, horse and foot, I had never been to Paulinzella..."

Today, Paulinzella can be easily reached by the Arnstadt-Saalfeld railway line, which was built in 1895. Let yourself be enchanted by the history and beauty of the village and experience an unforgettable stay in the Thuringian Forest.
