Nowhere else in Germany will you find such a density of World Heritage Sites as the WorldHeritageRegion of Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg has to offer.
Within the perimeter of only 35 kilometers, the region presents as many as four UNESCO-accredited sites: The Luther Memorials in Wittenberg, Bauhaus Dessau along with the Masters’ Houses, and the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz. The Biosphere Reserve Middle Elbe as a place of learning in the context of sustainable development belongs to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Elbe Riverscape. What all these places have in common? They are one of a kind!
