From imperial cathedral to the most beautiful woman of the Middle Ages

Merseburg and Naumburg - two cathedrals in one day. Let yourself be carried away to the treasures that already fascinated the Brothers Grimm!

The 1000 year old imperial cathedral Merseburg grew up in a place where the destiny of the empire was controlled in the Middle Ages. Emperor Heinrich II often stayed in the Merseburg Palatinate and furnished his cathedral in the most magnificent way. Today Merseburg Cathedral is a jewel on the Romanesque Road. Not only the world-famous "Merseburg Magic Spells", which were able to free prisoners from their fetters in pre-Christian times, provide excitement - even the Brothers Grimm were fascinated by them. Immerse yourself in the world of legends! On a guided tour or on your own with the audio guide you will find daily offers that make the treasures of Merseburg Cathedral speak for themselves. Treat yourself to some time out in the old town of Merseburg! Cafés and restaurants offer regional specialities.

After about 35 minutes by car you will reach the Naumburg Cathedral. Look into the eyes of the most beautiful woman of the Middle Ages, the founder figure Uta in the west choir and convince yourself of her expressiveness. Further world-class masterpieces await you in the cathedral treasure. In the idyllic Naumburg city centre you will encounter fragments of the medieval city fortifications. Be enchanted by the ambience of the Marientor at dusk with a glass of Saale-Unstrut wine!
