Memleben is a village and a former municipality in the Burgenland District, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. Since 1 July 2009, it is part of the municipality Kaiserpfalz. It is located on the river Unstrut.

In the 10th century the Pfalz or villa regia of Memleben, a kind of seasonal king's court, was one of the favourite places of the German king Henry the Fowler and his son Otto I the Great.

On behalf of Otto II, son of Otto I, a Benedictine monastery, Memleben Abbey, was built there in 973 to honour the memory of his father. It became one of the most important monasteries in the German kingdom for a short time.

Remains of the church and the monastery are still to be seen.

Nowadays the village has about 800 inhabitants.

It also has an animal training center open to the public. [1]
