52 Places to Go in 2019 (Dessau place 26)?


The journalist Sebastian Modak has recently published an article in the New York Times in which he describes 52 places you should visit in 2019. Interestingly enough there are only two German cities on the list – Munich on position five and Dessau on position 26. Now, I’m sure that the average Brit, American, Australian or any decently educated person has heard of Munich but who of you is aware of Dessau?

What do you think makes Dessau attractive enough to be worth a visit? I ask because I’ve been teaching a group of employees of the German Environment Agency, a federal agency that was moved from Berlin to Dessau a few years ago as part of a nation plan to have a least one federal agency in each federal state. Many thanks, Torsten


It seems to be a very beautiful country.
