“Exploring Unknown Corners” – A 2-Hour-Long Guided City Tour on a Double-Decker Bus

This season, our well-known routes are being joined by a brand-new tour in the form of a two-hour-long guided city tour on our double-decker bus under the motto of “Exploring Unknown Corners”, which will take place every Tuesday at 2pm.

Otto-Richter-Straße, Stadtrundfahrt

On this tour, our red double-decker bus will take you out of the city centre and into the Magdeburg districts of Buckau, Sudenburg and Stadtfeld.
After travelling through the Stadtpark Rotehorn city park, the bus will take you past the city's Puppet Theatre and its Central German Puppetry Collection before heading towards Sudenburg and Stadtfeld. On your journey into the city districts, you will be able to view a number of attractive buildings from the “Gründerzeit” period, St. Ambrose Church, the “Encke-Kaserne” barracks and several examples of architecture from the “Neues Bauen” modern architecture movement whilst finding out more about the history of the districts from your tour guide.
The second part of the tour will give you the opportunity to experience Magdeburg's most popular sights and attractions, for example Magdeburg Cathedral, the Art Museum in the Monastery of Our Lady and the architectural project by the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

In addition to the following fixed tour dates, groups are more than welcome to contact us at the Tourist-Information Magdeburg to arrange bus tours of Magdeburg at other times that suit their individual needs and requirements.
