1 Memleben Monastery - Tourist Information
In the 10th century the place Memleben goes down in history. King Henry I and his son Emperor Otto I stayed here several times. As the place of death of Henry I (†936), Memleben stands at the beginning of Otto's reign, but at the same time also at the end of his emperorship, as Otto I dies here. The spirit of the former Benedictine monastery, founded after Otto's death, can still be felt today. The magnificent ruins of the monastery church
fits idyllically between the monastery garden and the cloister buildings. The well-preserved late Romanesque crypt exerts a spiritual attraction on many. In addition to five exhibition areas, Memleben Monastery offers a regular programme of events, supported at times by Benedictine monks.

4 Memleben local history museum
The former residential and day labourer's cottage was first mentioned in a document in 1872, but is probably older. Acquired in 1994 by the partner association Wendelstein/Unteres Schwarzachtal, it was allowed to be used by the Heimatverein since then. In 2016 it was donated to the Heimatverein. The character of the Heimathaus was hardly changed visually thanks to loving renovation work in keeping with the preservation order (1994-2005, again from 2014). The complete renovation was rounded off with the planting of a pear tree in front of the Heimathaus to restore the typical character of the house.
image of the village. The Heimathaus is a clubhouse and meeting place for numerous cultural events in the village. The highlight is the opening of the house on the Open Monument Day in September.

5 Church of Saint Martin in Memleben
An imposing landmark of Memleben is the 30m high former fortified tower of the church of Memleben. The gothic sacral building was built in the 15th century and was baroqueized in the 18th century. The original fortified church is 30m long and 10.5m wide. 4 buttresses each support the southern and northern walls of the nave. The interior was renovated in 1726 and stucco was added to the wooden barrel ceiling. Since then a floating baptismal angel adorns the room. The pulpit altar, the altar crucifix and several wooden reliefs can be seen. The organ (1781, general repair from 2013-.

7 Walk along the Unstrut
The Unstrut is one of the two eponymous rivers of the Saale-Unstrut region, on which the power of the element was used as a transport route in earlier times. Today it is a popular destination for cyclists and water walkers. Various landing stages, locks and bridges along the river offer the desired anchor point on the way into the wine-growing area, in order to get to know the region not only from the water. The new hay bridge takes you to the other side of the Unstrut and offers a view of the Unstrut valley and the vineyards of the "Steinklöbe" single vineyard site.

8 Tumuli
From the monastery, take a detour into the nearby forest. There you will find some information boards on the "Archaeological Hiking Trail", which will give you an understanding of the history as well as the visible ground monuments. Some tumuli bear witness to the past. A barrow or a burial mound is a round earth-stone mound. Within it are burials from the Neolithic period with post-mortem burials from the Bronze Age,
which are often equipped with grave goods. The mounds may have fixtures, for example made of concentric circles, stone burial chambers or stone cists. Please follow the signs
