Haldensleben (Eastphalian: Halslä) is a town in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It is situated on the Ohre river, approx. 30 kilometres (19 miles) northwest from Magdeburg. It is connected by railway to Magdeburg, Oebisfelde and Eilsleben. It is the capital of the district Börde. It has a Protestant and a Catholic church. An old equestrian statue of Roland symbolized the rights of a medieval settlement to be accepted as a "town". It is the only statue of Roland sitting on a horse in the world. Before 1938, when it merged with Althaldensleben, the town was called Neuhaldensleben.
