Magdeburg Travel guide
Magdeburg : Michelin's recommendations
The capital of the State of Sachsen-Anhalt is built on the banks of the River Elbe. Situated at the crossroads of age-old trade routes, Magdeburg, with its history of war and destruction, is the pearl of the Romanesque route. Don’t miss the Abbey of the Premonstratensians, St John’s Church (where Luther once preached) and the splendid Cathedral of Saints Catherine and Maurice, which is a national jewel.
