'There is only one way that a man can connect to the higher power, and that is through being healthy and hale. Those who can't, sadly just end up missing that boat in my opinion.'
Christian Paullini, a noted physician and philosopher of the 17th century, was a staunch supporter of maintaining one's health to achieve a greater goal of personal as well as national scales. Born in Eisenach, Paullini was one of the most influential of German intellectual of his times, and if the words of his that are quoted above are anything to go by, it's not a surprise why that turned out to be the case.
Besides Paullini, masters of various other walks of life have been created and nourished by Eisenach over one millennium of its recorded history. Eisenach of today, however, is best known as a quaint city that chooses to fly undetected, at low altitudes, just to be sure that its safe haven of solitude and tranquillity is not shattered.

That should be good enough a reason to convince our readers (most of whom are pretty much always up for exploring new places and learning about new tourism ideas).
