About
Welcome to the Green Citadel - Friedensreich Hundertwassers’ “oasis for humanity and nature in a sea of rational houses”! This stunning location in the heart of Magdeburg, the capital city of the state Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It offers not only individual living spaces but space to experience: attractive shop fronts, function rooms, a hotel, a theatre, offices, medical practices and a kindergarten are all under one very special roof. The tour of the building that includes access to a few select interior spaces provides the visitor with a broad understanding of the architectural ‘causes’ that were so important to the artist and that he integrated across his structures. From the highest tower of the Green Citadel you are going to enjoy the stunning view over Magdeburg!

A very special building. Hundertwasser was pure kitsch, but beautiful kitsch. A must see in Magdeburg.

Really nice to wander through
Jul 2019 • Family
The Grüne Zitadelle (Green Citadel) is designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser (who also has many buildings in Vienna) and was build in 2005. It is nice to wander through. It has several shops, galleries, restaurants, and two patios. Very colorful. A really special building.

Quite a special look awakens the attention of the traveler. In "Spanish style". A really great architectural solution.

Enjoyable
Apr 2019 • Solo
Seeing such buildings on pictures I always thought it is not my cup of tea. But I changed my mind immediately when I saw it in real. It is enjoyable with all the colours and funny details. And the more, in case of Magdeburg it perfectly fits to the surroundings although it is completely different architecture.
There is a hotel in the building, several shops and cafe's and also public toilets.

Hundertwasser-like
Aug 2018 • Business
If you are in Magdeburg and you have 30 minute, go and visit the Grüne Zitadelle ( Green Citadel). Whatever you expect by the name, it is not green. But a really interesting building, withlots of secrets and some shops in the floor.

Beautiful Hundertwasser building!!
Dec 2018 • Couples
While most of the sites I look for while planning our European vacations are of historical significance, I can't help but enjoy unusual architecture. This is the fourth Hundertwasser building that we have had the joy of visiting. I always enjoy the sense of sheer joy he expresses in his buildings. They truly are works of art. You can't help but smile and wonder. Highly recommend!
