Saxony-Anhalt (Sachsen-Anhalt) is a state of Germany.
Though rich in history and cultural heritage starting with the bronze age, Saxony-Anhalt as a state is fairly young and only exists since 1946, created out of parts of the former prussian province of Saxony and the Duchy of Anhalt. It covers a wide variety of landscapes from the Harz mountains to the north german plain.
Having some of the most fertile soils in Germany, traces of settlement date back to the bronze age, as the find of the Nebra Sky Disk shows. In the middle ages places like Magdeburg, Halberstadt and Quedlinburg were important political centres within the Holy Roman Empire. The reformation of the church spread from Wittenberg around the globe since 1517.
Today the state of Saxony-Anhalt has got the highest density of Unesco World Cultural Heritage out of all states in Germany. These comprise the Martin Luther memorial sites at Wittenberg and Eisleben, the old town of Quedlinburg, the Garden Realm of Dessau-Wörlitz and the Bauhaus-sites at Dessau.
