Magdeburg Notable Building Fodor's Choice
Green Citadel of Magdeburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and, Thuringia, Germany, Europe.
Like an exuberant painting come to life, the Green Citadel is the last, and many say greatest, building by the late Austrian artist and architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who designed the citadel as an "oasis for humanity and nature within a sea of rational houses." Renowned throughout Germany and beyond, this ensemble of baroque façades and colorful modern buildings displays the architect's characteristic irregular windows, skewed towers, colorful mosaics, and joyous flourishes. The vast complex also incorporates bustling restaurants and enticing boutiques.
