Art & Culture

Experience the eventful past of the Saale-Unstrut region, which is particularly rich in art and culture. From the high medieval cultural landscape with the UNESCO World Heritage Naumburg Cathedral on the Romanesque Road to the baroque princely residences in Merseburg, Weißenfels and Zeitz.

Under the influence of Ottonian rulers in the Middle Ages, the numerous monasteries in Saale-Unstrut not only forced the cultivation of wine, but also provided for a lively art and culture scene. More than 30 profane and sacral buildings from the Middle Ages can be found on the Romanesque Road. Under the reign of bustling dukes, a magnificent baroque court culture flourished in the 17th and 18th centuries. During a visit to one of the three royal residence cities in the region, you can immerse yourself not only in baroque splendour but also in contemporary art & culture events.
