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.
