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:

  • The containment ordinance of the state of Saxony-Anhalt will be extended by a further four weeks - until August 20, 2022. This means that the protective measures of the 17th Containment Ordinance in force to date will continue to apply. This was decided by the cabinet in Magdeburg on Tuesday.

  • The Corona infection situation continues to be closely monitored and regulations continuously reviewed. In view of high infection figures, the appeal to pay attention to hygiene measures and minimum distances as well as to wear medical mouth and nose protection, especially in closed rooms, is all the more valid.

  • Particularly in medical and nursing areas, the existing obligations to wear medical mouth-nose protection and to be tested remain in force. In public transport, the obligation to wear medical oral-nasal protection continues to apply. Facility operators, event organizers and store owners still have the option of defining additional protective measures, such as mask or testing obligations, within the scope of their domiciliary rights.
