Magdeburg is divided into two parts - the "spiritual" and "secular." In "secular" part of the city is located Market Square, which overlooks the two-story City Hall built in the XVII century and featuring the early Baroque style. In front of the City Hall is installed the monument devoted to Roland - the knight and the keeper of the city. He is also a symbol of justice and protects Magdeburg from various disasters such as plague or war. We suggest entering a wine restaurant located on this square. This place attracts passers-by delicious cuisine and old wines, as well as free exhibitions and music played by young musicians.
"Spiritual" part of the city is represented by numerous monasteries and churches. The most famous ones show a true heart of the German Romanesque - the monastery of St. Mary, St. Maurice and St. Catherine Cathedral. All these churches were built centuries ago. Today visitors can enjoy mesmerizing sound of organ concerts that are conducted there. A beautiful Rotehorn Park is located nearby. This truly wonderful place was planted yet in the XIX century.
