The peculiarity about the little town of Rosenthal (smallest independent town of the state of Hessia which obtained town rights in the year of 1327), in the middle of the Burgwald forest, is its wonderful location. Situated in the hugest forest region of Hessia and away from all of the busy roads, you can enjoy the silence. As far as the eye can see: wide valleys with clear creeks and mountains (412m). Friendly citizens knew how to preserve the rural character of the town. Historic buildings, streets out of paving stone and alleys typical of that region tell from the ‘good old times’. As one of the special examples the beautiful town hall situated in the middle of the market place from 1654 with its frameworks which are typical.
The Burgwald forest, ‚Burgwaldtour Christenberg’:: The Burgwald forest 77 square miles, 400 km hiking trails, natural forest, nature reserve ‘Franzosenwiesen’ (engl.: French meadows), bird sanctuary, fairy woods of the Brothers Grimm!

Here you can still feel and see the Middle Ages. Boris Pasternak also felt that way: ‘If this here was only a town! But it is even a mediaeval fairy tale.’ For good reason Marburg is situated at the ‘German Street of Fairytales’. We will now go up to the castle. Here you can let your gaze wonder over the slanting roofs of the town, the Middle Ages are beginning to disappear and you get aware of the different architecture. These are not the times of Martin Luther and Huldrych Zwingli anymore, who in 1529 had a serious religious debate in Marburg. Here old and cockeyed houses of the ancestors associate with the modern architecture of the 20th century.
