Culture and sights 
Church of St. Concordia 
The church was built in 1660/61 and has never been changed since then. It is one of about eight angle churches in Germany and is considered to be among the two "real" angle churches, i.e. it was originally built as an angle church whereas the other churches only became angle churches after some reconstruction. The church consists of two wings that are situated at a right angle. Where the two wings meet there is the spire and the altar space from where both wings can be overlooked. Since Ruhla was largely spared from destruction during World War I and II St Concordia was not affected either. Hence it is the only angle church that has been conserved unaltered and in its original state since its first construction.
The park mini-a-thür (derived from miniature) shows about 90 models of sights of Thuringia, among the Creuzburg, Erfurt Hauptbahnhof, the Planetarium Jena and the Wartburg.
It was the birthplace of the composer Friedrich Lux. One of his operas is called The Blacksmith of Ruhla.
