Welcome to TORGAU
Torgau, founded in 973 AD approx. 50 km (30 mi) northeast of Leipzig, is situated on the banks of Elbe River. In 1526 the Protestant princes founded the Torgau League there. In 1530 the articles of the League were written by Luther, Melanchthon, and others, and they served as a basis for part of the Augsburg Confession. In the Thirty Years War, Gustavus II of Sweden and his allies held an important council of war in Torgau in 1631. In 1760, while the Seven Years War, Frederick II of Prussia defeated the Austrians under Daun near the city. Torgau passed in 1815 to Prussia. On Apr. 25, 1945, near the end of World War II, advance elements of the U.S. and Soviet armies made contact for the first time there.
Today, Torgau means narrow streets with picturesque buildings like the 16th-century town hall and the late Gothic Church, a beautiful Renaissance-style castle.
