This UNESCO World Heritage town, once home to Goethe, Schiller and Bach, is at its most magical in the festive season, when Schillerstrasse, Theaterplatz and the market square are resplendent with garlands of lights. Discover carved Christmas decorations from the Erzgebirge mountains, glass ornaments from Lauscha, the town hall as an Advent calendar and an array of must-try Thuringian culinary specialities. Why not don a pair of ice skates and go for a whirl on the ice rink in the old town before settling down with a nice warm drink in the Tyrolean winter village?
