The End of “Weltentor“


On the 3rd of July, the theme park „Weltentor“ - Middle Ages and fantasy as central theme - should have been opened in Ronneburg (Thuringia). However, three weeks before the scheduled opening, an application for bankruptcy was filed at the district court of Gera. According to different media reports, 3.5 million euros had so far been invested in the „Weltentor“ park. The German state Thuringia provided subsidies of 515.000 euros. The park’s future will mainly depend on the assessment of the appointed liquidator. (eap)
