Magdeburg

Time to go back to the south! Why not make a stop over in Magdeburg, the capital of Sachsen-Anhalt? There is a nice campsite on the shore of the river Elbe.

We don’t like this city too much. The cathedral is huge but inside rather bare.

The people of Magdeburg were lucky: they have a “Hundertwasserhaus”. The artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser had finished the plans and detail drawings for the house in Magdeburg before he died in 2000. Therefore, it was possible to build the project even without its creator – a dream of colors and shapes. But why the building got the name “Green Citadel”?

Perhaps it is due to the weather – we couldn’t find any more interesting in Magdeburg.
