Medieval Towns in the Altmark

Medieval Towns in the Altmark


The flat and sparsely populated Altmark region in the north of Saxony-Anhalt is still an insider´s tip among travelers. In 1859, Theodor Fontane already praised the medieval flair of Salzwedel and Stendal, Gardelegen and Tangermünde.

The lowlands between the rivers Elbe and Ohre offer splendid Gothic churches and sleepy alleyways as well as secluded regions for those in search of peace and quietness. Beautiful lake Arendsee is a popular holiday and outing resort in an area where lakes are sparse.

Those who wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of the big cities will find the Altmark region very much to ...

... their liking! Culture buffs can indulge their passion in Hanseatic towns and picturesque villages boasting romantic churches and numerous cultural and historical attractions.

Extensive plains, peace and quietness, invigorating country and unspoiled surroundings: discover the great natural beauty of the Altmark on foot, by bicycle or on horseback!
