    St Marien Church is the oldest building in Torgau. The famous painting "Die vierzehn Nothelfer" by Lucas Cranach the older can be seen here. Martin Luther was preaching here and his wife is buried in the crypt.

    This monument right next to the castle was erected to remind on the day in April 1945, when Soviet and American troops met first.
    The inscription means: "Here on the Elbe, on April 25, 1945, the forces of the first Ukrainian front of the Red Army linked up with American forces"

    Another permanent exhibition in the castle is the World War Two Exhibition.
    What most people do not know is the fact that Torgau is the place where Americans and Soviets met first in World War Two. On April 25, 1945 Sviet and American troops met each other on the bridge right next to the castle and gave a symbolical handshake.

    The Ratskeller is situated on the ground floor of the Town Hall. It has excellent local and region cuisine. I had aspargus with ham and potatoes crowned with a blob of Sauce Hollandaise. And of course, a glass of beer.
    The meal was excellent as well as the beer. Due to a tour group it took quite long before I had my meal.
