The province of Thuringia is located in what was East
Germany. Located next door to the Czech Republic and just above the
province of Bavaria, Thuringia is a largely forested province.
The Thuringian Forest, located in the southwest corner
of the province provides you with some of the finest walking in Germany.
Weimar is the primary city in Thuringia. In the
northwest part of the province is where you will find the Kyffhauser
mountains. This region contains many small villages and town and is
still largely uninhabited. However, you can find many excellent
hiking and nature trails here. The town of Bad Frankenhausen, where
Pension Schönblick is located, is small spa town.
About Bad Frankenhausen:
Bad Frankenhausen, formerly known as Frankenhausen is
a small town in central Germany. The town is located on the southern
slopes of a small wooded mountain range known as the Kyffhauser Mountain.
The town is located approximately 25 miles north of
Erfurt, approximately 60 miles west of Leipzig and about 120 miles
southwest of Berlin.
Frankenhausen literally means "Frank's
House" and as you might guess, the town was first settled by the
Franks in the 6th century. The town, now over 1,000 years old was first
created in the 9th century. In 952, Frankenhausen was property of Otto I
The Hausmannsturm (lookout tower) is the oldest
structure remaining in Frankenhausen. It was first recorded in
manuscripts in the year of 998. Remnants of the old city wall, common
for ancient European villages, still exist. Some buildings constructed
in the 17th century are still in use in today. Also, the area still has
the remains of the castles of Rothenburg (7th century ) and of
Kyffhausen (12th century).
The town changed ownership in the 12th century when
the Count of Rothenburg took control. During the 14 and 16 the
centuries, various other Counts also had ownership of the town.
The town suffered some bad a few times when fires
destroyed the village in 1689, 1759 and on February 15, 1833. As with
many other European towns, the town was also destroyed by the bubonic
plague in 1348, 1591, 1626, and 1639.
Circa year 1,000, the first in Frankenhausen was
built. Today, the church is known as Altstadter Kirche (Old City Church).
In 1215, a Roman Catholic Cistercian nunnery (Klosterkirche)
was built by Count Friedrich III. But in the 16th century, this was the
area of Germany in which the Protestant Reformation began under Martin
Luther which ultimately resulted in the creation of the Lutheran Church.
The convent was subsequently abandoned in 1551 and
was then taken over as a Lutheran school in 1552. The church was
reconstructed between 1596 - 1598. Unfortunately, it caught on fire and
was destroyed in 1689. The current building was constructed in 1690 -
1703 and has a Baroque architectural style.
The church is now known as the Unterkirche. In 1703,
Johann Nordt built an organ for the church. In 1804, the first German
Music Festival was held in the Unterkirche. This then resulted in other
national music festivals being held there in 1810 and 1811. Larger and
bigger organs were later created for the church and it eventually became
known as the best organ in Thüringen and among the best in Germany. To
this day, organ concerts continue in the Unterkirche.
During the Reformation the town was the site of the
Battle of Frankenhausen in May, 1525, where the Peasant's Revolt was
ended with the defeat by the princes of the peasants led by Thomas
Munzer. The revolt was inspired by misinterpretation of Martin Luther's
preaching and was denounced by him.
The 1883 tax records for Frankenhausen show that the
town was originally named Bärenklau (Bear Claw).
In the early part of the 20th century the name was
changed to Bad Frankenhausen, indicating a spa area. In German, bad
means "spa" or "bath".
