HavelbergHavelberg is a town in the district of Stendal, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It is situated on the Havel, and part of the town is built on an island in the centre of the river. The two parts were incorporated as a town in 1875. The Bishopric of Havelberg was founded in 946, though the bishop tended to live in either Plattenburg or Wittstock, which were a few miles north of Havelberg. The most famous bishop was Anselm.
