Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz

The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz was laid in the second half of the 18th century in the English style. A synthesis of nature, architecture and the fine arts, it bears testament to the cultural riches of bygone days. Its palaces, historical gardens, sculptures and numerous small buildings sit in harmony with the surrounding nature, lending the whole area a unique park-like character. Highlights include classical Luisium palace with its English gardens, Mosigkau's rococo ensemble, Grosskühnau country park, Georgium Palace and the Anhalt Art Gallery, the town palace and park of Oranienbaum and Wörlitz Park. The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz is essentially the work of two men - Prince Leopold III von Anhalt-Dessau (1740-1817) and his friend and adviser Friedrich Wilhelm von Erdmannsdorff.
