It is no wonder that the beautiful Monastery of our Lady in Magdeburg has become the "pearl of the Romanesque Road".
The unique well-house, magnificent barrel-vaults and sublime monastery church with its slender towers all make up an architectural marvel which is the rightful centrepiece of all Romanesque buildings in Saxony-Anhalt. The Romanesque building hosts both the Magdeburg Art Museum and the Georg Philipp Telemann concert hall, cultural highlights that are always worth a visit

The Monastery of Our Lady is considered the oldest surviving building in Magdeburg. History ascribes the foundation of the monastery to Archbishop Gero of Magdeburg who ordered the erection of the building in 1017/18. However, nothing has remained of the original construction. It was Archbishop Werner (1063-1078) who arranged for the reconstruction which was completed in the 12th century by the Premonstratensian order to which the Monastery was handed over previously in 1129.

The rotunda with its pointing cones, resembling a monk’s tonsure, is a remarkable architectural feature of the eastern wing. Together with its 32 arcades, the rotunda forms an ensemble which is considered one of the most amazing and interesting structures in European monastery architecture. After 1220, the monastery church was vaulted in early Gothic style.

Also deserving a special mention is the fine collection of sculptures ranging from medieval to contemporary which are displayed in Art Museum of the Monastery. The surrounding area includes a sculpture park created in 1989. The Art Museum offers an extensive permanent exhibition as well as changing and touring exhibitions on contemporary art and young art history.
