Visit Sachsen-Anhalt

The state of Saxony-Anhalt has around 2.19 million inhabitants. It is divided into eleven districts and three independent cities. The state capital is Magdeburg. The neighboring states are Lower Saxony, Brandenburg, Saxony, Thuringia and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

In the north, Saxony-Anhalt is characterized by flat land. In the sparsely populated Altmark there are old Hanseatic cities such as Salzwedel, Gardelegen, Stendal and Tangermünde. The transition from the Altmark to the Elbe-Börde-Heide region with the fertile, poorly forested Magdeburg Börde is formed by the Colbitz-Letzlinger Heide and the Drömling. In the Magdeburg Börde are the cities of Haldensleben, Oschersleben (Bode), Wanzleben-Börde, Schönebeck (Elbe), Aschersleben and Magdeburg, from which the region derives its name.

In the south-west lies the Harz with the cross-border Harz National Park, the Harz foreland and the Mansfelder Land as well as the cities of Halberstadt, Quedlinburg, Wernigerode, Thale, Lutherstadt Eisleben and Sangerhausen.

Zeitz, Naumburg, Weißenfels and Freyburg are located on the Saale, the Weißen Elster and the Unstrut in the south of the country, where the Saale-Unstrut region is located. Finally, Saxony-Anhalt also includes the Anhalt-Wittenberg region in the east with the third largest city in the state of Dessau-Roßlau.

Saxony-Anhalt has five UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Bauhaus, the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Realm, the Luther memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg, the old town of Quedlinburg and the Naumburg Cathedral. There is a diverse landscape of castles, palaces and churches in the country, as well as other valuable cultural monuments.
