This magnificent sculpture is an exact copy of the monument established in 1240 and commemorated to the Emperor Otto I. To see the original monument one should visit the culture historical museum Kulturhistorisches Museum. The ancient town hall Altes Rathaus is placed near the market square. Its construction was held at the edge of the 12th – 13th centuries. In the course of the long history the building was time and again destroyed. The last reconstruction of the town hall was held in 1965.
Among the present day samples of architecture the Millennium Tower Jahrtausendturm is worth noticing. It is located on the territory of the beautiful parkland. The original conic construction of unique architectural shape looks rather impressive on the background of green lands and flowerbeds. Among the religious sights of Magdeburg the Saint John Church Johanniskirche built at the beginning of the 12th century is most worth attention.
