Naumburg and Stendal – two cities in the middle of Germany

Naumburg at the Saale and the Hanse-city Stendal, both in the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt. I did visit both cities few days ago and will give you some impressions. Although they are quite close to each other, they have a distinctive history and appearance.

Naumburg is a city in Germany, on the Saale River. It is the administrative capital of the district Burgenlandkreis, in the Bundesland of Saxony-Anhalt. It is approximately 60 km (37 mi) southwest of Leipzig, 50 kilometers (31 mi) south-southwest of Halle. The first written record of Naumburg dates from 1012, when it was mentioned as the new castle of the Ekkehardinger, the Margrave of Meissen. It was founded at the crossing of two trade-routes.

Naumburg is mainly known for its cathedral (Naumburger Dom) with the four characteristic towers.

Uta von Ballenstedt and Ekkehard II., the founders of the cathedral in ca. 1000 AD.

Nice pictures of a beautiful town. I especially like the market place with some remarkable (Renaissance?) gables.
