1200 years of history!

The 1200 year old city on the banks of the river Elbe looks back on a rich and everchanging past. Magdeburg has suffered many destructions, however the city has always blossomed again and today's appearance paints an exciting picture of its colourful past. Art and architecture from all time periods bear witness to the bygone splendour and wealth of the former Imperial city.

Due to the beautiful Monastery of Our Lady and other architectural marvels in Romanesque style, Magdeburg has been lovingly referred to as the "pearl" of the Romanesque Road. Apart from the monastery and various churches, all erected in Romanesque style, the Cathedral of Magdeburg - proud and famous landmark of the city - dominates the historical city centre.

Magdeburg has something to offer for every age and lifestyle. If you are looking for green spaces in order to relax, come and enjoy a green city which boasts more than 20 public gardens and parks. The city is embedded in a scenic river landscape, both the river Elbe and the marvellous and unique floodplains offer wonderful sights to every naturalist.

    I did visit Magdeburg but didn't stay at this hotel in the end - we stayed in Wanzleben - 7km from the city. Nice page Michael!
