Welcome to architectural journeys through Saxony-Anhalt. The internet platform, a new offer within the framework of the national initiative 'Architektur und Baukultur' in Saxony-Anhalt, wants to inform people who are interested in culture and architecture. A main concern is the dispersion of “New Architecture” in Saxony-Anhalt that appeared after the political change at the end of the last century. We hope to offer you a varied and attractive overview of the current development of architecture in Saxony-Anhalt.
If you have any suggestions, we are happy to receive them.

New Moritzburg
On the 13th of December 2008 The New Moritzburg in Halle (Saale) was opened. “The impressive result of the European-open competition is the respectful treatment of the existing building structures without disfiguring or overbuildung them,” said Jan-Hendrik Olbertz at the official opening. The New Moritzburg is going to develop not only as a starting point for art lovers, but also a meeting point of those interested in architecture. (Photo: Ludwig Rauch)

Day of Architecture

Since 1996, on the “Day of Architecture,” a series of new building projects to the public are presented statewide through guided tours. Discussions and events occur locally. The “Day of Architecture” traditionally takes place the last weekend in June of each year and grows from year to year a bigger success. That is, among other things, due to a current multi-program, that over the years has evolved in form and content. The possibility of collaboration with architects and builders on construction sites is popular. There is a special interest in buildings that are not normally open for everybody. The nationwide launch event for the “Day of Architecture,” since 2002, and because of the Chamber of Architects in 2004 was in Saxony-Anhalt. The site of the Federal Environmental Agency in Dessau as a venue was a visitor magnet.
