Being & Appearance

“Being & Appearance – in History, Architecture and Monument Preservation” is the motto of the Open Monument Day on 12.09.2021. On this day, various objects and events can be visited from 10 a.m. onwards:

Among other things, the water tower at Lutherplatz opens its doors from 10-17 o’clock. Who knows this only from the outside and always wanted to know how he looks from the inside, should not miss this opportunity.

The mausoleum also opens its doors and can be visited from 10-17, after purchasing an entrance ticket. Small tip: After the visit of the mausoleum one can visit directly still the animal park celebration.

In the time of 10-15 o’clock with coffee and cake the inauguration of the footbridge at the deer swamp can be celebrated with Günter Becker. In this context there will also be a guided tour in small groups over the area.

After successful renovation, visitors can now also view the Villa Kämmerer Dessau at the Tivoli from 10 am – 1 pm & from 3 pm – 5 pm.

From the oil mill in Roßlau, at Hauptstraße 108a, guided tours are offered every hour on the hour from 11-17.

Also our Tante Ju can be visited in the time of 10-17 o’clock after purchase of tickets.

On this day, the churches in Dessau should by no means be overlooked. In St. John’s Church, the sounds of the organ can be heard from 5 p.m. onwards, in keeping with Organ Day.
Among others, works by Sebastian Bach and Louis Vierne will be played. Somewhat earlier from 13-13:45 the church Mildensee gives also an organ concert.

If organ music is too loud for you, you can also attend the concert for the youth music festival “In Capella” in the Christuskirche in Ziebigk at 5pm on 11.09.. There, the 3G rules are to be observed. Children and young people are exempt from this.

Under the title “Honoring Cemeteries”, the focus is on the cemetery of the Protestant parish of St. Peter and Cross in Dessau-Törten. In March 2020, cemetery culture in Germany was designated an intangible cultural heritage.
For the Day of the Monument, therefore, a sign documenting this distinction will be erected in the Törten cemetery.

At 11 am, the day of action begins at 11:30 and 12:30 can then participate in guided tours around the church and the cemetery.
At 14:30 can then participate in a round of talks in the rectory, then from 16:30 organ music will be played.
