The network "Garden Dreams - Historical Parks in Saxony-Anhalt" celebrates its 20th birthday in 2020.

The most important facilities are united here. the initiative celebrates the anniversary with parties and concerts. six garden monuments also celebrate in Saale-Unstrut.

Naumburg Cathedral Garden
the cathedral garden, which will only be restored in 2011, is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Naumburg Cathedral. in the modernly designed "Garden of the Naumburg Master" you can find plants that the unknown Naumburg Master filigree carved in stone in the cathedral. on 6th and 7th June, the United Cathedral Founders invite you to the europe-wide action weekend "Rendezvous in the Garden": interested people can stroll over the Naumburg Master Market or take part in the special guided tour "It's Greening So Green", while the children make a key ring in the open workshop of the KinderDomBauhütte. on 19th July, the blankets are spread out for a picnic in the cathedral garden. a few days later, on 31st July, the foundation invites you to the special guided tour "Outstanding World of Plants of the Naumburg Master". during the summer holiday actions in the anniversary year, various gardening activities such as "My Cathedral Garden to Go" on 29th July are on the programme for children.

Spa facilities Bad Lauchstädt
If you stroll through the magnificent, late-baroque spa complex with the Kursaal, colonnades, pavilions and fountains with sandstone balustrade in the Goethe city of Bad Lauchstädt, you can guess the former importance of the place - formerly known as the "Saxon Pyrmont". The highlight of the anniversary year is the Beethoven concert by the MDR Symphony Orchestra in the Historic Kursaal on 2 May. The spa facilities are freely accessible and guided tours are available all year round for groups of five or more.

Moritzburg Castle Park Zeitz
In Zeitz, in the south-easternmost tip of Saale-Unstrut, the early baroque Moritzburg Palace is surrounded by a modern, varied palace park - a unique work of art. The former ducal pleasure garden has been transformed into an ensemble of themed gardens whose beds reflect the different times of day. The highlights of the events in 2020 include the spring market on 5 April, the Festival of Lights on 2 May, the Garden Festival from 21 to 23 August, the Summer Symphony to celebrate the Garden Dreams Anniversary on 30 August and the Wine Festival from 19 to 20 September. The palace park is open from 30 March to 31 October.

Ostrava Castle and Castle Park
Magnificent old trees can be admired in the Ostrava Castle Park around the baroque castle, including a wealth of plants from faraway lands such as gingko, primeval sequoia, marsh cypress and Caucasian wingnut. The stately park trees of today are mainly thanks to the geologist Franz Wilhelm von Veltheim (1785-1839). The castle park is worth seeing every year from 15 February to around 15 March, when thousands of winterlings open their blossoms. The park is open all year round, and on weekends and public holidays the castle café serves homemade cake and hot chocolate.

Merseburg Castle Garden
the palace garden in merseburg was also first laid out as a baroque garden, but was later redesigned in a landscaped manner. it is located behind the cathedral-castle ensemble which is enthroned far above the river saale. event highlights are the castle moat nights with concerts on 4 and 18 July as well as on 1 and 15 August. on the occasion of the garden dream anniversary, merseburg cathedral invites you to take part in the guided tour "walking in the garden of the canons", as a family tour on 1 June as well as a special tour on 28 August. children are invited to join in the "scented bags and magic bags" campaign on 20 June, 22 and 26 July, in which they will search for medicinal and scented plants.
