Magdeburg – a City Pulsating with Life: There are plenty of good arguments for the City of Otto as a top location
City Magdeburg
Magdeburg forms the heart of open-air culture in Central Germany. The Lake Stage in the Elbauenpark, which contains 1500 covered seats and is the largest of its kind in Northern Germany, is used as a venue for major classical works, concerts or TV show recordings. The stage is located at the heart of the park, which was created on the occasion of the German Federal Garden Show in 1999 and is now one of the city's most popular destinations. High-ranking experts in the fields of horticulture and landscape architecture have presented the Elbauenpark with the Green Flag Award for its outstanding park management on more than one occasion. Green highlights in the City of Otto include the Herrenkrugpark and its racecourse, the Stadtpark Rotehorn city park and the Klosterbergegarten, which are just a few examples of why Magdeburg is one of Germany's greenest cities.

Magdeburg doesn't just have one, but four river 'Elbes'

The river Elbe can also be found in cities such as Dresden and Hamburg, but Magdeburg stands out as the home of four versions of the Elbe. The main river flows through the city over a length of 21km and is divided into two smaller rivers, the Stromelbe and Alte Elbe, by the Rotehorn Island. The large branch of the Elbe, known as the Taube Elbe, flows into the island's artificial Adolf-Mittag-See lake and the smaller Zollelbe branch forms a marina for visiting ships and boats. Magdeburg is connected to the Elbe and is now placing a strong focus on rediscovering the benefits of life by the river. The areas along its banks are welcoming new buildings and visitors enjoying relaxing waterside strolls, while cafés and restaurants invite them to sit back, take a break and enjoy the view. The development work along the Elbe is still in progress today, with plans and ideas flowing just as actively as the water itself.

Magdeburg is the birthplace of the Holy Roman Empire

In 962, Emperor Otto the Great founded what would go on to become the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, which existed up until 1806. During this period, Magdeburg was the Emperor's favourite residence. He therefore decided to construct both a palace and an extravagant cathedral-like monastery church in the city. In the present day, Magdeburg Cathedral is still a clear symbol of the city's significant history that can be seen from miles away. The City of Otto is actively committed to its history and not only presents it at internationally renowned exhibitions, but also uses new projects to continue to highlight its importance, for example the creation of a new museum to bring added value to the Cathedral District.
