Spring is welcomed in some style at the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz. On 22 and 23 March 2014 the traditional Frühlingserwachen (spring awakening) will be taking place in Wörlitz. The highlight of the two-day festival is the grand parade through the town on Saturday. Other attractions include a spring market, concerts, a gondola race and performances outside Wörlitz Palace.
The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz is one of 38 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Germany. There are three others in Saxony-Anhalt: the old quarter of Quedlinburg, the Luther memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg and the Bauhaus sites in Dessau.
