Nowadays, the face ot the city of Magdeburg is not only characterised by impressive historic medieval buildings, quaint Baroque facades and monumental districts from the "Gründerzeit" period, but also by its modern architecture, for example a masterpiece by Friedensreich Hundertwasser: THE GREEN CITADEL OF MAGDEBURG.
Magdeburg´s range of sights, attractions and activities is just a diverse as its attractive cityscape. The river Elbe, for example, runs right through the heart of the city and offers an idyllic landscape that is the perfect setting for boat trips, bicycle tours, walks and strolls.
Magdeburg is also home to a number of extensive parks that offer plenty of space for anyone looking to play sport or simply chill out and relax. In the warm summer months, these green spaces are transformed into open-air venues for a variety of events ranging from jazz festivals through to theatre performances.
