Magdeburg is the "Otto" city. The history of Saxony-Anhalt's capital has been shaped by two famous men named Otto: Kaiser Otto the Great and Otto von Guericke.
In its chequered past, the 1,200 year old city on the Elbe experienced not only destruction, but periods of glory time and again. These marks characterise the multi-facetted image of the city today. Remnants of architectural witnesses to the stylistic epochs remind us of the former glory and richness of this former imperial city.more
Not least on account of the beauty of the monastery "Unser Lieben Frauen" the regional capital of Saxony-Anhalt is referred to fondly as the pearl in the "Romanic Road". Besides the monastery and various churches from this time, it is the hallmark Magdeburg Cathedral above all that characterises the historical image of the city.
