Hanwha Q CELLS is not the only local source of good ideas, it’s a tradition in Dessau-Roßlau: The Bauhaus, one of the world’s first design schools, united a group of the most outstanding architects and artists of their time. Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Walter Gropius – all world-famous children of the Bauhaus. In Dessau, contemporary witnesses of the Bauhaus era; in Roßlau, testimonials to late-classical architecture; and together, a friendly atmosphere with expansive parks, gardens, and ponds. The many different facets between the Elbe and Mulde result in an astounding whole. The city has its own culture to offer as well: theater, cinema, cafés, museums, and exhibitions.

Perhaps no city is as closely tied to the name Martin Luther as Wittenberg. With the Stadtkirche St. Marien, the Lutherhaus, the All Saints’ Church, and the Melanchthonhaus, along with the neighboring Dessau-Wörlitzer Gartenreich, the city is a trove of world-renowned cultural sites. It’s no surprise that Wittenberg and its vicinity have more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other region on earth. Many visitors come to Wittenberg to walk in the footsteps of the great reformer and to draw inspiration from the spirit of his time, which can be felt all through the historic city center of the famed Lutherstadt an der Elbe. Throughout the year Wittenberg is host to a number of top-notch events, including art exhibitions, concerts, symposia, historical galas, and festivals. Residents and visitors enjoy the many wonderful cafés, restaurants, and taverns spread throughout the city offering a diverse range of food and drink.

The largest city in Saxony is as liberal-minded as Hanwha Q CELLS; it mesmerizes with its lively mix of historical buildings, new cafés, large-scale events, and international trade fairs. In and around Leipzig lies a peerless green belt, one of the largest contiguous riverside forests. It’s no wonder that a 2007 EU survey found Leipzig to have the third-highest quality of life on the continent – far ahead of Rome, Paris, London, Vienna, Hamburg, and Munich.

Halle is the most densely populated city in Saxony-Anhalt; it lies on the River Saale and, according to Heinrich Heine, is the home of the “Hallenser, Halloren, and Hallunken” – which is certainly open to debate. Halle is a cultural stronghold. Georg Friedrich Handel’s city of birth boasts two romantic castles, but also many young people and one of the oldest universities in Germany. Work out along the shores of the Saale or meet up with friends in bars and cafés: the best release for the best job.

Everything comes together here. With more than 3.5 million residents, Germany’s largest city is also its political center. The capital is a melting pot of culture, gastronomy, business ideas, young and old, metropolitan flair, underground spirit, rock and pop, sports and games, designer shops, and flea markets. Many even say that Berlin is cooler than New York.
