Travel to the Middle Ages in the modern city of Magdeburg
Medieval history, one-of-a-kind sculptures and a rich variety of leisure activities come together in Magdeburg. Magdeburg has a history spanning over a thousand years. Now the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt, it was first mentioned in the ninth century by Charlemagne. In the Middle Ages, the Benedictine abbey of St. Maurice stood on the same square where the cathedral now dominates the city skyline. Close by is Hundertwasser's Green Citadel, whose organic contours contrast with the adjacent historic buildings. One ideal starting point for a city tour is IntercityHotel Magdeburg. To enjoy picturesque views of this college town, stroll down the 4 km river walk along the Elbe. Take the whole family to the vast Elbauenpark, which boasts its own lakefront stage for cultural performances. There's the labyrinthine hedge maze to explore, and fun to be had on the long summer luge (Sommerrodelbahn). There's even a climbing wall and an inline skate park for the more sports-minded.
Between November 9, and November 13, 2020, there is no on-site parking available.
Currently, the tunnel on the Ernst-Reuter-Alle in Magdeburg is closed, due to a construction site. Please use the exit Cityring-Nord (Walter-Rathenau-Str. // B1), if you are coming via the highway A2 or Cityring-Süd (Am Fuchsberg) if you are entering the city from the south.
