Wormsleben is a district of the municipality of Seegebiet Mansfelder Land in Saxony-Anhalt , Germany .


The village is located 800 m north of Lüttchendorf at the foot of the Riss , a steep slope. The sweet lake is located between Wormsleben and Seeburg, and wine is grown on its north bank. The European long-distance cycle route E11 leads through Wormsleben .

Unterrißdorfer Strasse


In 1073 the Saxon bishops and counts met in Wormsleben to discuss joint action against King Heinrich IV , a few days before the confrontation in Goslar .

The Richersdorf desert village once stood between Wormsleben and Unterrißdorf .

Martin Luther passed through the town on his last trip to Eisleben on January 28, 1546, and is said to have frozen here. A memorial plaque between Wormsleben and Unterrißdorf reminds of this.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The towerless church of the Holy Cross was built in parts as early as 838. The roof was repaired in 1982, the interior was renovated in 1986. The organ, considered to be valuable, was built in 1872 by master organ builder Friedrich Gerhardt from Merseburg (without fan) and repaired in 1986 to be playable.
