    This ruin lies romantically in the middle of the Salegaster forest.

    There was never a monastery here, just a church.
    Wenherus de Salgast was published in Magdeburg's chronicle chronicle for 1208. In 1285, Bertholdus de Salgast was the master of the place. Her little castle stood on the Schlangenberg, a castle hill, also called tower hill. It stands next to the church and is still about five meters high today.
    You can see two oaks:
    The two lovers
    A legend is told of a girl and a boy who loved each other but were not allowed to marry according to the wishes of their parents. During a thunderstorm, they sought shelter in a cave that led into the mountain of snakes. No one has seen her since, but since then two oak trees have been leaning towards each other.

    The ruin
    The stone in the foundation of the church ruin

    In the most beautiful, genuine Dessau meadow landscape, ten minutes south of Jeßnitz lies the
    Forestry Salegast.
    All that remains of the old village is the church, as a ruin, close to the forester's path.
    Of course, this church has no particular historical or art-historical significance, but, apart from its practical use, it is a piece of romance in the oak forest, which I hope will be able to speak to us for a long time to come.
