  • Very nice cathedral with many architectural features. Beautiful art inside, a must-see in Magdeburg. They have bathrooms inside (for 50 cents). The people working there speak English and are helpful when you want to know a bit more. Remember to check out the Cathedral's model in scale, right from the entrance!
  • This is among the most awe-inspiring buildings I have ever seen. And when you realize it was built many hundreds of years ago without the modern construction equipment we have today, it makes it even more of a marvel. A must-see for anyone in East Germany!
