  • Great place. Been there many times. Always visit when in Magdeburg.
  • I love the Architecture. It is fun to look.Every corner is interesting. The color of the building itself is already an eye catcher. And how it is made. Amazing. A must see when you visit Magdeburg. And food is delicious in Hyaku Mizu. Try it.
