The German UNESCO Commission and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Germany have made this year the "Year of the UNESCO World Heritage - Sustainable Culture and Nature Tourism". This gives occasion to focus upon the 3 Bauhaus sites and the 13 monuments of Classicism in Weimar, which are World Heritage sites.
The theme year UNESCO - but WORLD HERITAGE 2014 refers not only to the culture, the natural monuments are included in the tourist concept.
Thus, alongside the well-known cultural heritage sites of Weimar Classicism and the Bauhaus, guests are invited to visit the interesting and pleasant Wartburg in Eisenach (a World Heritage Site since 1999), the Nationalpark Hainich with the treetop walkway near Bad Langensalza (on the World Heritage List since 2011), UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Vessertal-Thüringer Wald (since 1979) and the Rhön (since 1991).
