Kulturstiftung Sachsen-Anhalt is responsible for some of the most important monuments and art treasures in the region. Our castles, cathedrals and churches diversely reflect more than 1,200 years of Central German history. That is found not only in the historical buildings themselves but also in individual parts of the original furnishings and unique holdings which are of great scientific interest.

One of Kulturstiftung Sachsen-Anhalt’s main tasks is thus to research into these monuments and their furnishings. The first focus is on the history of the individual buildings; their origins, their use and the manifold changes which have occurred over the centuries. These structures were not just a place where many people lived and worked but also, at the same time, the scene of important historical events. The second focus lies in the collections’ artistic and cultural treasures, covering topics ranging from the Middle Ages to modern times.

This demanding task requires intensive interdisciplinary collaboration. Important cooperative scientific projects have been set up and will be further expanded in the future. Publications and exhibitions convey the newly gained findings to the public. Kulturstiftung Sachsen-Anhalt invites you to explore the history of art, culture and the region together in an authentic location
