A special treat will be a visit to the GREEN CITADEL OF MAGDEBURG. Thousands of visitors flocked to Magdeburg on 3rd October 2005 in order to marvel at the Hundertwasserhaus building designed by world-famous architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The attraction of the Hundertwasserhaus still continues today. A steady flow of visitors and Magdeburg residents shows that the magnetic attraction of the unusual building is as powerful as ever.
