We take the regional train to a town where time seems to stand still, where medieval architecture and modern culture interweave seamlessly. Stendal, a jewel of the Altmark region, invites you to take a journey through its winding alleyways.
The impressive suspension bridge in the Harz Mountains at the Rappbode Dam has become one of the tourist highlights in recent years. Rightly so, I think, because a visit there is really impressive.
The Harz Mountains are really excellent for a weekend getaway. Wernigerode is located in Saxony-Anhalt in the district of Harz directly on the northern flank of the low mountain range.
I love the TV pictures of the Brocken, when you see the storm sweeping over the mountain top and people trying to move forward. For that reason alone, it was clear to me relatively quickly that if I’m in the Harz, I have to go to the Brocken.
For me, Baumkuchen is one of the most delicious cakes when it is fresh. The fact that I was able to eat this speciality in the Harzer Baumkuchenhaus in Wernigerode was a real surprise for me.
There’s nothing going on in Zeitz… only old people live there… where is Zeitz, I’ve never heard of it…
We have often heard these and other prejudices when we have reported enthusiastically about the town in Saxony-Anhalt. Of course Zeitz is struggling.
