At the heart of the World Heritage Site
Dessau is the ideal starting point for exploring the World Heritage region of Anhalt-Dessau-Wittenberg. Within a radius of just 30 kilometres, you can reach places such as the towns of Köthen and Zerbst, both former seats of princes of Anhalt, the Luther City of Wittenberg and the Great Goitzsche Lake nature and recreation area.
In the Luther City of Wittenberg, you can learn all about the history of the Reformation, while in Köthen you can walk in the footsteps of Johann Sebastian Bach. In the palace of Zerbst, you can learn first-hand about the history of Catherine the Great. Relax on the shores of Goiztsche Lake far from the hustle and bustle, or in Ferropolis – the city of iron. And all that at an advantageous price, with the World Heritage Card.
