Palaces, castles & parks

Be it Baroque gardens or extensive and imaginatively designed parks, herb or even stone gardens, locations throughout the local region are home to cultivated green spaces that breathe life into stunning landscapes and invite visitors to enjoy a pleasant stroll full of attractive highlights, for example in Bernburg, Hundisburg, Ummendorf and Gommern. In the time between the Renaissance era and the period signalling the start of industrialisation, architects and horticulturists created parks and gardens with an extremely wide range of designs and intended uses on behalf of aristocrats, lords and local authorities. These were joined by brand-new horticultural treasures when the towns of Aschersleben and Burg hosted the Saxony-Anhalt State Garden Show (Landesgartenschau Sachsen-Anhalt).
