Holidays in Saxony-Anhalt

Welcome to Saxony-Anhalt

Experience Germany’s cultural treasure chest. No other place in Germany has conserved as much evidence of more than 1000 years of German and European history as the area of today’s Sachsen-Anhalt. Visitors can enjoy this whilst experiencing some of the most worthwhile sights in the world.

Saxony-Anhalt is well worth a visit – several, in fact!

This is where Martin Luther carried out his work, leaving his mark on the state and transforming it into the Cradle of the Reformation. This is where the Bauhaus reached its heyday and developed its distinctive style, which made it the absolute icon of modernity to this day. Saxony-Anhalt has the highest concentration of World Heritage Sites in Germany: the Bauhaus Dessau, Luther’s Wittenberg and Eisleben, Quedlinburg’s Old Town, the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz and the Naumburg Cathedral.


The most important rules at a glance:

  • Most Corona rules were dropped in Saxony-Anhalt on April 3. Instead, only a number of so-called basic protection measures now apply. This was decided by the state government.

  • About the 17th Corona Containment Ordinance (valid from April 3)

  • The basic protection includes, for example, the mask obligation in public transport and in facilities such as doctors' surgeries, hospitals, day clinics, care facilities and homeless shelters. The mask requirement applies there only in enclosed spaces. The requirement to wear mouth-to-nose protection applies to patients, visitors and passengers. The new Corona ordinance is scheduled to be in effect until April 30.

  • In stores, it is "recommended" to continue wearing a medical mouth-nose protection and to pay attention to minimum distances. However, a mask no longer has to be worn when shopping. The state is thus adopting the requirements of the federal Infection Protection Act. Owners can now decide for themselves whether masks are compulsory in their stores and demand them from customers by means of house rules.

  • For employers, employees and visitors, testing remains mandatory in hospitals, outpatient care services, shared accommodation for asylum seekers, facilities for the disabled and prisons.

    Testing is also still required at schools and daycare centers. Testing is required for students and staff at schools at least three days a week until April 10. From April 19, 2022, to April 24, 2022, two tests per week will suffice.
