Luther, Bauhaus, Garden Kingdom & more

Following the footsteps of the famous Bauhaus artists, looking behind the scenes of Martin Luther’s life or hiking through the stunning Garden Kingdom Dessau-Wörlitz and through vast floodplain forests – all of the above is possible in our WorldHeritageRegion Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg.

Four strikes in a row: Our region scores with three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the Luther Memorials in Luther’s city Wittenberg, Bauhaus and its sites in Dessau, the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz and the UNESCO biosphere reserve Middle Elbe. Our city tours, museums and personal recommendations grant a view behind the scenes of famous cultural attractions. They include Johann Sebastian Bach’s town Köthen; Zerbst – the home of Catherine the Great; the romanic tower of Till Eulenspiegel in Bernburg .

The WelterbeCard, our guest card, helps to discover our highlights. It is also useful for planning leisure activities in our region. There are the foodplain forests in the middle elbe biosphere to discover as well as the diverse landscapes around the Goitzsche lake.

We love our WorldHeritageRegion. Do you?

"The biggest sight there is, is the world - come and take a good look."
