10244 Thüringer Wald           Discovered 1960 Sept. 26 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
The Thüringer Wald is a mountain range east of the Werra river, flowing from northwest to southeast. The summits are the Inselsberg (900 m) and the Beerberg (980 m). It is a wonderful area with beautiful forests for hikers. The main industry is creating Christmas decorations and children's toys.
