Jena, city of light and science

    In the Thuringian Saale valley, the optics and university town of Jena offers business travelers and holidaymakers alike a metropolitan flair on the edge of nature.

    Anyone traveling to Jena for events or business meetings can get an initial overview of the Thuringian university city from the viewing platform of the JenTower at a height of 128 meters. The entrepreneur Carl Zeiss once laid the foundations for Jena's reputation as the cradle of the optical industry. You can find out more about this in the centrally located Optical Museum. After your appointments, you can experience the uniqueness of space in the Zeiss Planetarium, accompanied by music, and then stop off at one of the many pubs and bars around Wagnergasse. Close to the Göschwitz train station and the A4 highway as well as nature, you can stay overnight at MAXX Hotel Jena. From there, you can reach the banks of the Saale river, one of the three connected parks of the Volkspark Oberaue, in just a few steps.
