Germany: Saxony-Anhalt & Lower Saxony

As the heartland of German and European history, Saxony-Anhalt offers a host of monuments from the Middle Ages that are worth visiting.

The outstanding skills and abilities of the master builders from the Romanesque era are particularly reflected along the “Romanesque Road” running through Saxony-Anhalt in a northern and a southern route. The 1,000 kilometres long route joins 65 towns and villages with 80 buildings dating back to the Romanesque period.

Splendid cathedrals, small parish churches, mighty castles and monasteries testify to the importance of the region, which is now Saxony-Anhalt, in the Middle Ages.

The beautiful small town with its 17 communities is a city with a relaxing atmosphere and is an alluring destination for visitors. There is plenty to see and to explore: first and foremost the famous Romanesque cathedral, founded by the Roman Emperor Lothar III. Also historical mechanical musical instruments, richly adorned half-timbered buildings and colorful houses from many eras with surprising details.
