Thuringia is next to Bavaria, Hesse, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Saxony-Anhalt, as well as Saxony. It has been called "the green heart of Germany" (das grune Herz Deutschlands) since the late 1800s because it has a wide, dense forest. There are many rivers and creeks that flow through Thuringia that are on the right side of the Elbe. The Saale is one of them.

Thuringia is home to the Rennsteig, Germany's best-known hiking trail, and it runs through the state. In 2014, half of Germany's 136 Winter Olympic gold medals came from Thuringian athletes. It has a winter resort called Oberhof, which makes it a good place to go for winter sports. Favored or born in Thuringia were three important intellectuals and leaders in the arts: Bach and Goethe.

The Frankish Duchy of Thuringia was set up by King Dagobert I in 631 AD. Thuringia was then known as the Duchy of Thuringia. During the Weimar Republic, it became a state in 1920 when the Ernestine duchies, except for Saxe-Coburg, merged together to form the new state. After World War II, Thuringia became part of the Soviet occupation zone in Allied-occupied Germany, and its borders were changed to make it more like the rest of the country. Thuringia became part of the German Democratic Republic in 1949. In 1952, the Districts of Erfurt, Suhl, and Gera were formed as part of administrative changes. Following the reunification of Germany in 1990, Thuringia was re-established and re-drawn. It became one of the new states of the Federal Republic of Germany.

During the Migration Period, a Germanic tribe called Thuringii was formed. The name Thuringia or Thuringen comes from the name of this tribe. They don't know where they came from. They were thought to be the descendants of the Hermunduri in the past, but later research didn't agree with that. Other historians say that the Thuringians were allies of the Huns, moved to central Europe with them, and lived in what is now Galicia before that. This is what they say. Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus first talked about the Thuringii around 400. During that time, the Thuringii were known for their great horses.

Until 531, the Thuringian Realm was the largest state in the area. The Landgraviate of Thuringia ruled from 1131 to 1247. As time went on, Thuringia didn't exist anymore. People kept using Thuringia as a general term for this area between the Harz Mountains in North, the White Elster River in East and South, Franconian Forest in South-West, and Werra River in North and West. People from Thuringia had their own family again after the Treaty of Leipzig. They were the Ernestine Wettins. The Free State of Thuringia, which was formed in 1920, was made up of their different lands. It was also made up of a few small principalities. They joined Thuringia in 1945.

The coat of arms of Thuringia shows the lion of the Ludowingian Landgraves, who lived in the 12th century, in the shape of a lion. The eight stars around it show the eight states that used to be part of Thuringia. There are white and red stripes on the Thuringian flag, which is how it got its name. The coat of arms and flag of Hesse look a lot like those of Thuringia, because they are both based on symbols from Ludowingia.

For example, in popular culture, Bratwurst and the Forest are two things that people think about when they think about Thuringia.
