Magdeburg, the capital city of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, is situated on the Elbe River and was one of the most important mediaeval cities of Europe.
Magdeburg’s numerous comfortable hotels will provide for a restorative stay in this metropolis. Many of the hotels are located near the cathedral square with the imposing cathedral St. Mauritius und St. Katharina, Germany’s oldest Gothic cathedral.
While staying at a hotel in Magdeburg, you should see the cathedral’s interior with bronze memorial plates of the 12th century and precious sandstone statues. In close proximity to your Magdeburg hotel you will find the Unserer Lieben Frau (Our Beloved Lady) Monastery, the city’s oldest building, where nowadays the guests of a Magdeburg hotel may experience glamorous concerts.
A large number of Magdeburg hotels are located in close proximity to the Old Market Square, where you will come across the Magdeburger Reiter ("Magdeburg equestrian"), Germany’s oldest free standing statue. Only a few steps away from your Magdeburg hotel, you will find yourself at the idyllic promenade at the banks of the river Elbe, which invites you to go for a relaxed walk. If you are looking for the possibility to go on a shopping spree while staying at a hotel in Magdeburg we recommend you to go to Börderpark. The town park Rotehorn, located at the banks of the rive Elbe, provides for various possibilities to spend your leisure time, with the local animal park being nearby.
You will reach your hotel in the north of Magdeburg easily via the autobahn A2. Magdeburg is traversed by a well-organised traffic system of suburban trains, trams and busses, which unfortunately do not belong to one traffic service. This is why you have to buy a different ticket for every means of transportation. Magdeburg was dominated by the machine constructing sector for a long time, but is nowadays profiting more and more from the service industry.
