Starkly contrasting the Stalinist buildings in this previously East German city, Grüne Zitadelle was designed by famed architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Built in 2005, this pink and gold building that incorporate flowers and trees is already one of Magdeburg's most recognizable buildings. It features more than 55 residential flats, as well as office space and several other facilities. Take a guided tour for a look into Hundertwasser's creative process and to visit select parts of the interior, as well as the sunny interior courtyard.

  • This is an architectural improvisation. People still live and work in it.Its pink colour.Its shape is irregular.That's enough to take you there! It also has a way up through an elevator where you can ...  more »
  • This hotel stands out from the standard, because it is located in a wonderful building, integrated into the shops, theatre, kindergarten, etc. The room was large and spacious. Since there are no breakfast room, you can get room breakfast on it. That was good, it lacked nothing and looked appealing and tasted very good. We were impressed by the building, you should not miss a tour, it is worth. The hotel is very centrally located. Clear recommendation for Magdeburg!

  • Stand out from the grey monotony of the surroundings and amazed by countless hide details. Unfortunately no leadership could make will's but nachhholen.

  • Wonderful quirky and visionary
  • Absolute must in Magdeburg great architecture and many great little shops. Necessarily a guide book, just so the tree dwellers and the "crooked" apartments you can examine

  • Definitely worth a visit. Regularly interesting guided tours are offered. But even without a guide is worth a visit. It is very colorful and every detail is different. The situation at the Cathedral and close to the Elbe River is also super.
