Welcome to Dessau-Roßlau

Selected three times as a world cultural heritage site in a landscape full of character and poetry – the Dessau-Anhalt-Wittenberg world heritage region is a must-see for everyone – and Dessau-Roßlau town is simply the best place to visit. Over half (8) of the world heritage sites are located in the town itself and trains, buses, roads, fascinating cycle routes and hiking trails are all available for your trip to Wörlitz and Wittenberg.

Have fun exploring our website and visiting our region!
