Dessau, in Saxon-Anhalt, and where I live and work in the Anhaltische Philharmonie is a town of around 80,000 inhabitants, and a vast theatre. We are currently in the second season of a Ring Cycle. Dessau was 90% destroyed in world war 2, and only a few old buildings remain, all in the area Dessau-Nord. Nevertheless, I have found a few Green Men here.

There are 3 carvings on the building at Wasserstadt. It is now used as a day centre for the elderly and a youth club

The Museum for town history is on the site of an old manor house in the town. All that remains now of the original building is a solitary entrance archway, with a rather menacing looking Green Animal.
