Whenever visiting Magdeburg, you really have to go and see this enormous building near the town center. Didn't get to go inside, but worth the visit!

The Dome itself is quite impressing. Inside it is "cold" and I expected more, what shall not mean that I was disappointed.

I was able to view the exterior during a brief trip to the city. The impressive front of the Dome was even more striking as the sun went down. The river is nearby.

Yet another huge Gothic cathedral, but it stands out as the first of it's type in Germany and has a certain gracefulness about it. Some of these structures don't seem forthcoming at all, but this one does, even if it is a bit scarcely decorated....More

Great church. Great in real and spiritual dimensions. A huge and very ascetic temple, perfect to stop and think about the most important things. A pleasant garden and, of course, the emperor's tomb.

Dominating the skyline, this church has massive blocked stone towers that bracket the main entrance. The nave's vault reached to half the height of these towers, with clear glass windows pouring natural light. Carved stonework graces the walls and columns, the pulpit and door lintels....More

Must see while in Magdeburg! Wonderful architecture, enjoyed looking inside the cathedral. Glad it wasn't (completely) destroyed during the war.

Somehow I had failed to visit Magdeburg even after die Wende. This time we made the trip, about 1.5 hours from Berlin, and we were enthralled, especially by the Dom. It is a superb example of the early Gothic style, with some very good statuary,...More

It cost .50 to use the bathroom found with some difficulty. Would have really liked to see the photographs of the reconstruction progress. There is a sign along one side requesting donations for a Synagogue in Magdeburg but no place to put the money. How...More
