04 Okt Location Old City of Naumburg
I had planned this for a long time and want to take you on a little tour with beautiful through my home. Naumburg in the southern Sachsen Anhalt is a mttlerweile over 1000 years old city with a lot of tradition, flair, great designs. In its long history was Naumburg bishopric, part of the Hanseatic League, the seat of the Higher Regional Court, garrison town and getting a civilian town. This translates into a great architecture with small streets and the great houses of the former merchants and craftsmen. An extensive restoration program and many private investors is thanks to them that this architecture and the city received as a complete ensemble and no longer shine like a long time.
The city is known mainly through the Naumburg Cathedral. The National Exhibition of the Naumburg Master and the cathedrals of the Middle Ages in 2011 and attracted many people. The development of the city and the historic landscape in the regional environment was also reflected in the application of the Unesco World Heritage Site. The application is currently being revised after an initial examination of Unesco and should be quite vorraussichtlich again next year.
“ To coming home is a special feeling. In my to history, culture and beautiful landscapes meet. ”
Besides the cathedral, the market, the small alleys and backyards and certainly the churches like St. Wenceslas are the highlights of the city. Many big and small festivals keep the city life always active. The „small stage“ carries with entertaining plays in the cultural life. In the Wenzelskirche I can make beautiful photographs of an art exhibition at the Tour, for example, that surprised me in your diversity. The artist Roland Lindner from the region presented until 31.10. there sculptures on the theme „What remains?“.
A good appointment is always the Cherry Festival last weekend of June of the year with the parade and a large medieval market. More information about the city and events among other www.naumburg.de. I have collected a few shots at a small family tour. Since I can not post anything that it is important to say and what ever forget I would be glad if left any reader from home even tips and impressions in the comments.
