A short trip to let the soul dangle: Saxony-Anhalt combines a wide range of tourist attractions with history, culture and landscape. Nature and hiking enthusiasts will find their perfect spot in Saxony-Anhalt’s west, at the famous Harz National Park. For lovers of nature, this area is pure paradise. Idyllic valleys with picturesque waterfalls, such as in the Ilse Valley, provide a fascinating ambience during discovery tours. Also spectacular to see is the Devil’s Wall, a rock formation from the time of the dinosaurs, which stretches over 20 km and is a real natural wonder.
The highlight among the natural spectacles is the Hexentanzplatz Thale, which is also often called the Grand Canyon the Heart. On the Hexentanzplatz are a mountain theater, a summer toboggan run, an animal park, an observation tower and a cable car.
Equally impressive is the Road of Romanticism, which begins in Magdeburg and stretches throughout the state. A total of 88 buildings from the Romantic era are connected by a route. Also on the Road of Romanticism is a moated castle that is now used as a wellness hotel.
Another special feature is the city of Quedlinburg, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and should definitely be seen. The buildings and cute half-timbered houses from past eras distinguish Quedlinburg. In the world heritage city, past and future unite with each other. Let yourself be fascinated by the contrast of the medieval atmosphere and the young art scene, which was created by the historical charm of the World Heritage City. Especially the picturesque old town with its winding streets, historic half-timbered houses and cafes exudes a magical ambience. Quedlinburg’s old town is home to several important buildings such as the town hall and the half-timbered museum. But one highlight is at least as worth seeing in its own way as the monuments from medieval times. The strong contrast to the medieval atmosphere is the Ferropolis. Ferropolis is both a theme park and an industrial museum. “The city of iron” also attracts many musical artists, as in addition numerous events are held there.
