The town's origin dates back to the Middle Ages and visitors can find many beautiful sights and attractions bearing witness to the city's old heritage. These include the stunning cathedral and the Jahrtausendturm tower, which is the third highest wooden tower in the world.
This Gothic basilica is Magdeburg's main historical sight, and dates all the way back to 937 when it was founded by Otto I. It is now the burial place of Otto and his wife Editha and is filled with artistic highlights including sculptures and a antiwar memorial.
This decommissioned medieval monastery is Magdeburg's oldest building. Now a museum, it is home to regional sculptures and contemporary art.
The original bronze door for the town hall was destroyed during World War 2, and now boast a new bronze relief door designed by artist Heinrich Apel.
