Introducing Lutherstadt Wittenberg & Saxony-Anhalt

This otherwise unprepossessing region in former East Germany is renouned for two towns closely associated with the religious reformer Martin Luther – Lutherstadt Wittenberg and Lutherstadt Eisleben. Enthusiasts of Bauhaus architecture should not miss the chance to visit Dessau, whereas Halle is successfully morphing from a former chemicals centre to a lively university town. Magdeburg, the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, is a rather dour city that lacks the vibrancy of Halle and is best known for its cathedral.
