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:

  • Saxony-Anhalt is extending the regulations of the 18th Containment Ordinance until November 26, 2022, the cabinet decided in Magdeburg on Tuesday. Thus it remains in Saxony-Anhalt with the known regulations. A mask obligation for indoor areas therefore does not exist.

  • Based on the Saxony-Anhalt Containment Ordinance, medical mouth-to-nose protection must continue to be worn in public transport. The Conference of Transport Ministers, as well as the Conference of Minister Presidents, had recommended a uniform procedure for the entire Federal Republic. Saxony-Anhalt thus remains in the concerted action of all the federal states. In view of the incidence of infection, Health Minister Petra Grimm-Benne appeals to citizens' sense of responsibility: "To protect people of advanced age or with pre-existing conditions, we should all continue to exercise caution. Especially indoors and in places where many people gather in a confined space, it is currently strongly recommended to wear a mask."

  • Based on the Infection Protection Act (IfSG), there also continues to be a nationwide requirement for testing in medical facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes and outpatient care services. In addition, there is an obligation to wear an FFP2 mask in these facilities as well as in long-distance passenger transport and in doctors' offices, for example. Children up to the age of 6 are exempt from the mask requirement. In long-distance passenger transport, children between the ages of 6 and 14 can also wear a medical mouth/nose protection. The same applies to control and service personnel and driving and control personnel, insofar as there is physical contact with other persons due to the nature of their work.
