Starkly contrasting the Stalinist buildings in this previously East German city, Gruene Zitadelle was designed by famed architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Built in 2005, this pink and gold building that incorporate flowers and trees is already one of Magdeburg's most recognizable buildings. It features more than 55 residential flats, as well as office space and several other facilities. Take a guided tour for a look into Hundertwasser's creative process and to visit select parts of the interior, as well as the sunny interior courtyard.

A very special building. Hundertwasser was pure kitsch, but beautiful kitsch. A must see in Magdeburg. more »
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.
