With more than 4 million people the Free State of Saxony is the sixth-most populous state of Germany. Its capital is Dresden, largest city is Leipzig. The third major city is Chemnitz. Dresden and some other regions play a leading role in parts of international biotechnology, such as electronic bioengineering, and microchip fabrication. Leipzig is a young, lively and open city and home of many museums, arts and one of Europe’s oldest university. The Leipzig area could greatly benefit from investments by the automobile industry. Both, Dresden and Leipzig are two of Germany’s most visited cities.
In the Free State of Thuringia (population 2.1 million) more than a half of the territory is in agriculture and forestry use and formed the so-called Green Heart of Germany. The economic process is quite different between the regions of Thuringia. The two major cities along the motorway Erfurt (capital) and Jena and their sourroundings are booming, whereas nearly all the rural regions, especially in the north and east, have little economic impetus and empolyment. The University of Jena, founded in 1558, is the biggest amongst Thuringia’s four universities and offers nearly every discipline, the polytechnics are based in Erfurt. Famous became the Goethe Residence in Weimar.
Because of the chemical industry, Saxony-Anhalt (population 2.2 million) attracts more foreign direct investments than any other state in eastern Germany. But the state is also famous for its good soil. Hence, the food industry has an important role. Well-known are the products from Germany’s oldest chocolate factory. The two major cities are Magdeburg (capital) and the metropolitan area of Halle Saale. Saxony-Anhalt has the most World Heritage Sites of all states in Germany, including sites tied to Martin Luther’s, several examples of Bauhaus architecture and the Collegiate Church, Castle and Old Town of Quedlinburg.
