“Someone just hung up some 1.2 million lights…“ More than a million lights and 100-kilometers of light chains transform Magdeburg all winter long into a unique world of lights.
During the city tour through the "Lichterwelt" Magdeburg's city guides have exciting anecdotes about the light sculptures at the ready. The tour takes the participants on a time travel through Magdeburg's moving history. Germany's first emperor Otto the Great was at home here - and fell in love with the city. He declared the large fortress on the wide river and the wide Elbe floodplains to be his favorite palatinate.
