The former capital of
Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, the town is built along the River Saale inside a wide valley surrounded by woods. Rudolstadt was founded in 776 and has had municipal law since 1326. The town's landmark is the Castle Heidecksburg which is enthroned on a hill above the old town.
Rudolstadt became popular through the
Anchor Stone Blocks of the Toy Company Richter and porcelain-factories.

folk, roots, and world music festival, TFF.Rudolstadt (Tanz&FolkFest), taking place annually on the first full July weekend.
