Until 1990, the inner German border passed between Geisa and Rasdorf (Hesse), Geisa was in effect a restriction zone, the East German authorities maintained their side of the border, there was limited access to the area between 1952 and 1990. East Germans from outside the restriction zone had to apply for passes to enter it. West Germans were barred from visiting. Farmers close to the border were allowed to visit only once an official permit had been issued. Just across the border between East and West there is a memorial to what was a former US observation camp - In military notation Point Alpha - that had sometimes been referred to as one of the "hottest spots of the Cold War, there visitors can view exhibits on the presence of US armed forces. Tourists visit to see the area and all that it offers, and the location of one of the most important locations of last century within Germany.
The town is the westernmost municipality in what was formerly East Germany. The town is just North of the Rhön Mountains. In terms of tourism, the area is simply stunning.

The younger is the Barockschloss (1712–1714) - a building by Johann Dientzenhofer - originally a hunting lodge for the Abbot (later Bishop) of Fulda.
