Welcome to Neidenberga!

There are lots of recreational activities to enjoy here in Neidenberga; whether an authentic Thuringian barbecue party, sports and games evenings, or perhaps a campfire - there's something for everyone here. If that's still not enough, why not try a tour of the reservoir or explore the enchanting Saalfeld Fairy Grottoes?

Sightseeing and excursions

How about a tour of the reservoir? Set sail and enjoy the unrivalled scenery of the Hohenwarte reservoir. Start off at Greez beach, below the Youth Hostel. Everyone boards the boats and you set off for Hopfenmühle or to Saalthal Alter. There you'll have a chance to get a bite to eat and enjoy some sports. You can return either by boat or on foot along the path that leads around the reservoir. There are different tours available.
Why not try Saalfeld's Fairy Grottoes? The Fairy Grottoes are the town of Saalfeld's main attraction. Every year they attract young and old visitors alike, who are amazed by the incredible colours of these stalactite caves.
Immerse yourself in this stunning world, which is open all year round, and be inspired by the grottoes' beauty. Take in the unique atmosphere of the "Fairy-Tale Cathedral" with its "Holy Grail Castle", and enjoy a fascinating display of light and spectacular music. Themed even tours allow you to explore the Fairy Grottoes as you follow in miners' footsteps, or take a guided tour with the Grotto Fairy.
