The state capital at the Elbe
The Elbe has no other choice on its way from Dresden to the North Sea. But it flows smoothly, steadily, without pause, without the leisure. Magdeburg would be just as much for an extraordinary stop. The former imperial and Prussian fortified town has not only been a political and cultural center of gravity since its election to the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt.
Your “third Rome” was once the most powerful city in Europe. The medieval cathedral district with the Gothic cathedral, the Romanesque monastery, the baroque parliament and many other buildings are stone witnesses to the long and varied city history.
In addition to its history, modernity also flourishes here. Architecturally, for example, in the “Green Citadel”. It is the last completed construction project of the brilliant architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Or the waterway cross. The largest hydroelectric engineering plant in Central Europe. With its locks, lifting gear and trough bridges unique. Both buildings will be visited as well as the green Magdeburg with the Stadt- und Herrenkrugpark.
