Should you stay in a hotel in Mühlhausen you should visit the parish church of Divi Blasii which has one of the most famous Bach organs. A pleasant walk can be made around the old defensive works of the town and there is a very interesting museum dealing with the Peasants‘ Revolt. The castle of Friedrichstein towers over the town of Gotha and in the castle church the visitor to the Thuringia Basin can admire the coffins of the ruling family of Thuringia. The castle museum has a large collection of medieval art and artefacts of which the most famous is the „Gotha Lovers“ from 1480. Bad Langensalza also has many hotels as a spa town and many protected buildings. If you stay in the Thurigian Basin then it is worth taking the time to visit the 912 meter high Großer Inselsberg which offers a wonderful view over the surrounding area and its hotels. The Thuringian Basin is easily reached along the Autobahn A4.
