Your gateway to poets and philosophers
In Halberstadt you can feel and experience the period of Enlightenment in many different ways. Be it at the house of the German poet Gleim, now a museum, or the wonderful Spiegelbergen country estate to the south of the town - the spirit of Enlightenment is present everywhere. You may even chance upon Gleim and his friends in person.
The chess village of Stroebeck is definitely worth a visit. There you can witness living chess pieces fighting out the most dramatic and mind-boggling battles on the market square.
