Saxony-Anhalt Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Saxony-Anhalt regained its status as a regional state in 1990, when the reunification of East and West Germany took place. It has now more than 2.5 million inhabitants and 21 municipalities. Magdeburg, the capital, is very famous for its cathedral with the early Gothic sculptures and Otto von Guericke's (1602-1686) trial experiment with the "Magdeburger Halbkugeln". In Halle / Saale you will find the interesting past of a salt producing city as well as the Haendel music festivals. Other tourist destinations may be: Eisleben, the city where Martin Luther was born and died, Wernigerode in the Harz mountains (discover the ski resort "Brocken" at 1.142 m sea level) or Dessau, famous for being the capital of the "Bauhaus" movement in the early 20th century.
