    Take a tour of Wartburg Castle in Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.

    High on a rocky, tree-carpeted hill in Germany, Wartburg Castle surveys the land.

    This sturdy castle dates all the way back to 1067, when Count Springer built it.

    The high walls look out over the forests and the nearby town of Eisenbach.

    The castle gained fame after 1521, when Martin Luther stayed here following his excommunication.

    It was during this time that Luther translated the New Testament into German from Latin.

    Wartburg Castle is visible atop the hill during the day, and is lit up at night.
