(No Transcript)
Thüringen, our federal state is called the Green
Heart of Germany. The capital city is Erfurt.
Erfurt is a great city with churches, museums
and shopping facilities. In Thüringen you can
find one of the nicest forests, called Thuringian
Forest- Thüringer Wald. A lot of tourists come
here every year in summer or winter. They go
walking in summer or skiing in winter. Our
hometown is Schmiedefeld its in the south of
Thüringen, in the middle of Thüringer Wald, near
the towns Ilmenau and Suhl. You can reach the
cities Erfurt or Weimar within an hour.
The bordering countries of Germany are the
Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and France in
the west Poland and the Czech Republic in the
east, Austria and Switzerland in the south and
Denmark, the Baltic- and the North Sea in the
north. The geo coordinates of our federal state
of Thüringen are longitude 10 degrees east
till 13 degrees east. latitude 52 degrees north
till 50 degrees north. If you try to find all
these numbers on the world map, you will exactly
know, where we are.
More common facts
Schmiedefeld is on the famous walking way
Rennsteig. In Schmiedefeld there live about
2,200 people. The village is between 680 and
944 metres above sea level . Schmiedefeld is a
safe place for winter sports with about 150
days a year with temperatures under zero. The
tourists can find lots of different possibilities
for accomodation. Schmiedefeld is the best place
for all kinds of winter sport activities- you
will find offers for active participation in
Schmiedefeld and its sourroundings- you can
choose yourself! Cross country skiers will find
15 kilometres of prepared tracks on top of
different mountains. The lift takes skiers from
the valley to the top of the mountain up to about
800 metres. The new built highway (A 71)
connects our region to Ilmenau and Erfurt- it
brings you safely and fast back to your home
Schmiedefeld was mentioned for the first time in
documents in 1406. The foundation dates back to
iron ore mining and processing in Schmiedefeld.
In the 16th and early 17th century this branche
was a very successful supplying branche for the
production of weapons in Suhl, a town nearby.
Finally the factories from Rheinland/Westpfahlen
were more successful than that region in the
Schmiedefelds market place around 1937.
In the years 1809 and 1855 porcellaine factories
were founded, but they didnt survive. The first
economical progress for the region only came with
the foundation of glass factories in 1862. Also
the production of musical instruments like
organs, violins and zithers brought wealth to
Schmiedefeld for more than 150 years and it made
the name famous across the borders.
Map of the village
Already with the beginning of the 20th century
the first tourists came to Schmiedefeld. In
1904 Schmiedfeld was connected to the railway and
that made it much easier to reach it. In the
middle of the 30ies more than 3,000 guests
visited the town.
Schmiedefeld hosts fetched their guests from the
Schmiedefeld dialect
The bird catcher " Wu bisten gewaßt? En Wald,
ha Krienetze gefange. Wenn des verratst, wieviel
ich hao, kriechste alle neu!No, wieviel
werschten hon? Mer wonn ämol sprech, du hast neu
gefange.Luder-Jong, doas hoat dr dr Teufel
gesäöht. Can you translate it into normal
German language???
Tourism in Schmiedefeld
Schmiedefeld/Rennsteig is between 680 and 944
metres over sea level and only 2 kilometres away
from the famous, legendary walking way
Rennsteig. Its a good place for relaxing and
winter sports. In hotels, holiday houses or
holiday flats or in privately owned houses
friendly hosts are waiting for their guests. They
spoil their guests with specialities from
Thüringen and events which show the extraordinary
athmosphere of Thüringen- our federal state.
Ski courses (downhill and cross country) are
offered to skiers without enough practise.
Snowboarding courses are also available. Once a
year- in May- you can join in a famous marathon
called Guthsmuths- Rennsteiglauf. People come
for all over Germany and from abroad to take part
in. You can chose between different tracks- the
