Inside Saxony-Anhalt: Luther & Bauhaus (IG)

(October 2016.)

I continued a consecutive annual streak going back to 2001.

I’ve set foot inside Germany at least once every year since 2001. I’d already claimed another consecutive year with a short stint in the spring, but autumn “at home” in Germany* solidly confirmed a 16th consecutive year in the country.

As motivation to trace Martin Luther’s footsteps for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 and to learn more about the impact of the Bauhaus art and design movement for the centenary in 2019, I embarked on a press-trip in autumn 2016 to the German federal state of Saxony-Anhalt.


Previews

The following offer glimpses to additional coverage for each of the five towns.

•   25 October : arrival in Frankfurt
•   26-27 Oct : Eisleben and Mansfeld
•   27-29 Oct : Dessau
•   29-31 Oct : Wittenberg
•   31 Oct-3 November : Halle an der Saale
•   3-5 Nov : Leipzig
•   5-8 Nov : Prague, with Deutsche Bahn’s IC Bus service from Leipzig
•   8-16 Nov : Berlin
•   16 Nov : Frankfurt
•   17 Nov : departure from Frankfurt.

More on the consecutive streak …

•   Autumn 2015
•   Autumn 2014
•   Summer 2013, with German Rail Pass
•   Autumn 2012 (year-long RTW), with German Rail Pass


IMG- and Sachsen-Anhalt-Tourismus provided support with assistance from the cities of Eisleben, Mansfeld, Dessau, Wittenberg, and Halle (Saale). I made all of the photographs shown above with the Canon 6D. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8R4.
