The town of Sangerhausen, located in the heart of Saxony-Anhalt in the district of Mansfeld-Südharz, has a population of around 25,500 (as of December 2022) and exudes the charm of a lively district town. Known for its picturesque location on the southern Harz Mountains, Sangerhausen offers a harmonious blend of cultural wealth and natural beauty.

Sangerhausen's historical significance is reflected in its impressive architecture. Particularly noteworthy is St Jacob's Church, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, and the Old Town Hall, which impressively tells the history of the town. However, Sangerhausen is not only a paradise for lovers of historical buildings, but also for nature lovers. The town is home to the Europa-Rosarium, the largest rose garden in the world, which delights more than just botanists with over 8,500 species and varieties of roses. Other attractions include the historic town centre, St Mary's Church, St Ulrich's Church and the Wettelrode show mine and mining museum, which impressively illustrates the region's 800 years of copper slate mining. Sangerhausen owes its affectionate description as a "town of mines and roses" to precisely these two defining aspects of its rich history and culture - mining and the Europa-Rosarium.
