The main UNESCO sights in the town are clustered around a compact area between the train station and the castle church. Most of the hotels are in this area, although independent visitors should book as soon as is possible for town centre hotels as organised tours to the town make the accommodation very popular.
The hotels chosen are from the four-star to three-star categories and some of them have online booking facilities through our travel fulfilment partner Booking.com. You can check availability at those particular hotels by clicking on the button under the hotel.

Saxony-Anhalt does have its own small airport at Magdeberg - currently unused by scheduled services - but by far the most convenient place to fly into is Berlin for the choice of destinations and frequency of flights.
Distance to Leipzig-Halle Airport: 77km
Distance to Berlin-Brandenburg Airport: 116km
Distance to Hannover Airport: 233km
Distance to Erfurt-Weimar Airport: 237km
Leipzig-Halle Airport is the closest but only has a restricted international selection (not counting summer sun holiday destinations).
Wittenberg has a number of railway stations within the town boundaries, but the principal is called Lutherstadt Wittenberg Bahnhof, which is served by InterCity trains from Berlin, Leipzig, Dortmund and Munich. The main railway station is probably a 20 minute walk from the tourist information office in the centre of the town.
The other useful train station is Lutherstadt Wittenberg Altstadt, which is served by hourly regional trains in the direction of Dessau. This is much closer to the old town.
