Countless cultural treasures in the Altmark
The Altmark is an old German cultural landscape. Venerable churches, old half-timbered houses, charming castles and manor houses, beautiful parks and gardens, an eventful history, important historical personalities – the Altmark has created all this. And the Altmarkers preserve their valuable heritage.
Whether it's exhibitions or concerts, theatre or cinema, museums or galleries – the local cultural scene is alive and well. Painters and graphic artists, sculptors and woodcarvers, musicians and actors, authors and singers prove their skills in many places in the Altmark and enchant you and the audience. This also applies to the Kunsthof Dahrenstedt, the Kulturhaus Salzwedel, the Musikforum Katharinenkirche, the Kunst- und Kulturscheune Arneburg, or the Sommerschule Wust. Top-class artists from Germany and the rest of the world also make guest appearances in the region every year.
