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

Cathedrals may not be everyone's cup of tea and I am not going to argue that the interpretation here (in English at least) matches some modern destinations. But this an impressive building with some splendid stonework and artefacts. It has history dating back 1200 years....More
