Art historian Tassilo Speler shows us three heritage sites: Luther memorials in Wittenberg, the Bauhaus in Dessau, and the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz.
A series of 100 euro gold coins has been issued since 2003 to honour the German UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For 2019, the Federal Government has chosen the Speyer Cathedral as its motif.
The 18th century dukes created artistic landscaped gardens here; the Bauhaus masters ushered in the era of modern architecture. For visitors, that means UNESCO World Heritage sites wherever you look.
42 World Heritage Sites in Germany invite you to guided tours and events on UNESCO World Heritage Day on 3 June. Soon there could be two new UNESCO sites.
Where was Martin Luther born? On which river is the UNESCO World Heritage Garden Kingdom Dessau-Wörlitz located? Which of the world's oldest depictions of the cosmos did treasure diggers find? Test your knowledge.
