Dutch Working Visit to Germany, Last Day: Saxony-Anhalt
Today, Friday February 10, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima began their fourth and last day in Germany in Dessau-Rosslau, an urban district in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.
There the Royal Couple paid a visit to the Staatliche Bauhaus, a school of art, design, architecture, and applied arts founded in 1919 in Weimar. This art school was the most influential modernist art school of the 20th century and since 1996 it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
During the visit the King and the Queen toured the building and had a brief meeting with the students of the masters program of the school and signed the guest book.
Afterwards the Royal Couple attended a meeting focused on flood protection in the presence of the German delegation and a delegation from the Dutch institute Deltares that is involved in the research in the field of water and subsurface.
The last event of the visit for the King and the Queen was in the Oranienbaum Castle, in the city of Oranienbaum-Wörlitz. The castle was built from 1681 to about 1685 as summer residence for Princess Henriette Catharina, wife of Prince Johann Georg II of Anhalt-Dessau and born Princess of Oranien-Nassau. The Royal Couple toured the castle and then took place a luncheon.
