The folk festival in Lutherstadt Eisleben took place last weekend. Regarded as one of the largest in East Germany, it features a large funfair with rides, food stalls, artisans and vendors. The Eisleben meadow market dates back to 1521, when Emperor Charles V gave the town the right to hold a cattle and ox market. This turned into a folk festival.
