Schmalkalden Vacation Packages

Escape into a few peaceful environments. Two recommended ones include Miniature Park Trusetal and Zwergen-Park.

This region has a fascinating past. You can hear all about it at Schloss Wilhelmsburg.

See how passionate the locals are about their sports by watching a game at DKB-Ski-Arena Oberhof in Oberhof. It's just 10 miles to the east of Schmalkalden. Remember to cheer for the home team with the passionate locals.

Feel the winter breeze on your face as you ski down the slopes at Skilift-Masserberg.

If you go 5 miles to the southeast of Schmalkalden you'll come to Viernau. A trip here gives you the opportunity to experience Bowlingbahn, Toschi's Station and Thuringian Sea Aquarium. Another option is Ebertshausen. It's about 6 miles out of Schmalkalden, and is the home of Waffenmuseum Suhl and Bowling-Center.

Consider taking the family to Zella-Mehlis, a regional hub just 10 miles to the east of Schmalkalden. The area is home to a range of attractions, including Wintersportmuseum Oberhof, Fahrzeugmuseum Suhl and Am Ritter. Froschwiese and Schmücke are some more places if you have extra time.

Communicate with the people you meet by familiarizing yourself with a few key phrases in German. Guten Abend translates to good evening. Es freut mich, dich kennen zu lernen (pleased to meet you) is good to practice as well.

If you're planning on being here on the 3rd of October, you better be ready to let your hair down. Every year on this day, the entire nation comes together to celebrate Unity Day.

As your time here draws to a close, spend any remaining euros on a few little keepsakes and say a heartfelt "Auf Wiedersehen" to this special place and the characters who call it home.

When it's time to hit the tarmac, you might like to know that Erfurt Airport is 30 miles to the northeast.
