Old Town and Magdeburg Cathedral
The historic old town is the jewel in Magdeburg’s crown and, amongst its historic walls dating from the last 1000 years, there are numerous remarkable buildings from the Middle Ages, the Baroque and the Wilhelminian period, which were lovingly restored after the destruction of the Second World War. A highlight of a leisurely city tour is a visit to Magdeburg's landmark, its cathedral. The sacred building, built in the late Romanesque-Gothic style, captivates with its Renaissance sculptures and carvings. A brush with history is felt as visitors walk past the ornate burial site of Emperor Otto I and his wife.
