A beautiful cathedral. Yes, plainer than many inside, but still beautiful - very detailed sculptures and carvings. Especially liked the 'weeping angels' - left hand side of the cathedral through a door. And don't miss the tombs of Otto the Great and his first wife Edith.

Buy a leaflet for the cathedral (1 euro) so you know what you are looking at. Costs 2 euros to take photos but worth it.

Then go to the Dommuseum Ottanianum which is next door to find out more.

Stands out on the skyline
Feb 2020 • Couples
Like so many ‘Doms’ in Europe this one commands attention on the city skyline. Because of its evangelical history it is quite ‘bland’ when compared to other doms (Catholic). No stained glass windows, few icons etc. But the expansive interior is breathtaking. We were warmly welcomed to stay for midday prayers (15 minutes) which we did. Certainly put on your list to do in Magdeburg.

Interesting cultural must do

Impressive cathedral/dome with a lot of history. Good to see. I enjoyed mostly to wander around a fairly empty religious site. The cloister was almost deserted as it was a rainy weekday but this gave a very special atmosphere.

Pretty building, well worth a view, especially from the wide spacious square next to it, offering shade and fountains for the little ones to run around in, from where it is also an easy walk to the green citadel on one side, and the water front on the other. Great spot for a cool down.

Beautiful on the outside. Inside the building is gloomy and austere. It is nevertheless a highlight in Magdeburg.

Beautiful but needs more care
Apr 2019 • Solo
Like most of evangelic churches also Magdeburger Dom looks very simple at the first sight but it has plenty of beautiful details. It is unusually richly decorated. Unfortunately it obviously needs more care. A lot of mainly wooden decorations is worn and don't look as well as they could. Yet it is well worth a visit.

Tallest structure in Magdeburg.

Magdeburger Dom has classic architecture, inside and outside. There is also a new pinnacle built which was torn down during the war.

Impressive cathedral
Dec 2018 • Couples
I think the exterior of the cathedral was more impressive than the interior. However as we were waiting for the cathedral to open, we found the door to the cloister area which we thought was quite lovely.
