Welcome to Magdeburg

Magdeburg is a lively and attractive place to live, with something for every generation. As well as all that it has to offer in terms of cultural and leisure pursuits, sports and educational institutions, and child-care facilities for all ages, its location on the River Elbe and its many parks mean that it can also be a place of peace and relaxation.

If your arrival in Magdeburg is to proceed as smoothly as possible, it is important for you to get your bearings quickly and play an active part in city life. There is already a wide range of information available which is designed to make this easier for you, such as Magdeburg's guide for immigrants (click here for printable version). It includes all of the most important information, types of assistance available, and contact details, and has been translated into a number of languages. In addition to the guide for migrants, the volunteer agency in Magdeburg has also prepared leaflets on topics such as school enrolment, healthcare provision, socialising, and leisure activities.

This website aims to help you locate the information you need, and make it easier to navigate your way through the many different services and types of assistance offered by the city administration and its partners.
