Naumburg at the Saale
Here on the Saale, where two important trade routes already crossed in the Middle Ages, the margraves of Meissen decided to build a castle. Only a few years later, in 1028, the bishop's seat of Zeitz was moved here. Soon after, the construction of the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul began. The church building, consecrated before the year 1044, underwent many architectural changes in the course of its history and today it skillfully combines elements of the late Romanesque as well as the early and high Gothic periods.
