About Magdeburg

Magdeburg is the capital of the state of Saxony-Anhalt. The city on the Elbe River is one of three major centres and, with a population of around 240,000, is the second largest city in Saxony-Anhalt after Halle.

In 1882, Magdeburg became a large city with over 100,000 inhabitants. During the Second World War the city was badly affected: After an air raid on January 16, 1945, 90% of the densely populated old town, 15 churches, and large parts of the Wilhelminian style quarters were badly destroyed. In GDR times, several buildings damaged or destroyed during the war were demolished, including the ruins of the Ulrichskirche in 1956.

The city at the intersection of the Elbe, Elbe-Havel, and Mittellandkanal has an important inland port and is an industrial and commercial centre. Of economic importance are mechanical engineering and plant construction, health management, environmental technologies and recycling management, logistics, and the manufacture of chemical products, iron and steel products, paper and textiles.

Magdeburg is the seat of both Protestant and Catholic bishops and the city's main landmark is the Magdeburg Cathedral.

The state capital is home to numerous important cultural institutions, including the Magdeburg Theatre and the Magdeburg Museum of Cultural History. Magdeburg is also home to the Otto von Guericke University and the University of Applied Sciences Magdeburg-Stendal.
