A German town: Bad Sachsa / Harz Featured

A German town: Bad Sachsa / Harz Bad Sachsa Church hjk/mcvth, kasaan media, 2020

Bad Sachsa has an eventful history.

More than a thousand years old, the town is located at the foot of the Harz Mountains, almost precisely on the German-German border at the time of the German division.

Bad Sachsa is a thermal cure resort. Tourism in Bad Sachsa has existed since 1860. 

The relocation of the military research institute from Peenemuende to Bad Sachsa during the Second World War is also worth mentioning today.  

Many families who lived in Bad Sachsa at that time were forcibly arrested and deported.

Bad Sachsa was a stronghold of the Nazis.

In Bad Sachsa, research on the V2 and its successors continued. Prisoners from the nearby concentration camp Dora-Mittelbau were cruelly used. Wernher von Braun and Dornberger were accommodated in Bad Sachsa until the bombing of Nordhausen in April 1945.

 

The St. Nikolai church and the borderland museum, (Grenzlandmuseum) which communicates the German-German division very vividly, are places that every tourist should have visited at the foot of the southern Harz Mountains.

Here are some impressions of the town:
