Sadly the war destroyed enough that the reconstruction has left merely a large indoor arena, suitable for meetings. The church outside is ok. Nice statue of Luther outside.

It's a lot of steps until you reach the viewing platform, but boy it's worth it. You get views of the whole city. Unbelievable how green Magdeburg is!There are also views of the Dom zu Magdeburg, Grüne Zitadelle, Elbauenpark and the Elbe. On nice weather an absolute must do!

Massive disappointment at first when visiting this church. Martin Luther preached there in 1524, and I expected to find some kind of information about such a landmark. Today, the church serves as a concert hall, and the nave is completely empty, and has been fitted with panels to give it a better acoustic. However, on the way out, I realized it was possible to go up one of the steeples. After a strenuous climb (the steps are very uneven, although wide), the view that the sweaty tourist can admire is awesome. Well worth the effort if you feel like spending a couple of pounds. Entry is free, climbing is free but takes its toll.

The arts centre located in a former church, has renovated one of the towers into a free viewing platform.

It's a heafty 200+ step climb up the tower, but the views from the top over Magdeburg are worth the effort.
