The City

The capital city of the Bundesland Saxony-Anhalt looks back on a history of over 1200 years. Magdeburg has an eventful, historical past as an imperial residence, Hanseatic city and Prussian fortress. It is the second greenest city in Germany with a population of about 230 000 people.

Otto von Guericke (physicist, diplomat and mayor), baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann and architect Bruno Taut are a few historic characters that make the city on the Elbe River proud.

Magdeburg has evolved into the city of conferences, conventions and science. Therefore it has long-standing traditions of scientific and technological development.

The Harz Mountains and four UNESCO world heritage sites are just around the corner.
