Magdeburg is situated in central northern Germany, in the region known as Saxony-Anhalt. The city was an important station of the Holy Roman Empire, and now occupies a prominent position in modern German society. The architecture of Magdeburg is one of the most striking features of city, blending large communist style structures akin to those in East Berlin, along with beautiful churches and intricate contemporary designs such as the Jahrtausendturm.
Car hire in Magdeburg is recommended as you're at an important intersection between Berlin, Halle and Hanover. Hiring a car in Magdeburg is available from the city's airport, the railway station and the city centre itself.
Magdeburg is famous for its Christmas market which attracts thousands of tourists each year at the Alter Markt Square. Architectural landmarks such as Friedensreich Hundertwasser's 'Die Grune Zitadelle' (the Green Citadel), and the Jahrtausendturm, provide a stark contemporary contrast to gothic delights such as Magdeburg Cathedral, which is one of the tallest churches in northern Germany. For visiting sports fans venues such as the GETEC Arena are popular, and their position on the city's perimeter makes them highly accessible by vehicle, if you opt for hiring a car in Magdeburg. Those who rent a car in Magdeburg will find themselves in a privileged position at the crossroads between cities such as Berlin and Halle.
For some respite from the city, Elbauen Park is a short drive on Ernst-Reuter-Allee. Halle is about an hour's drive south on the A14, where the renowned Landesmuseum is a must see. The city of Dessau is fairly close by on the B184 and here you'll find architectural attractions like the Bauhaus Foundation. Saxony-Anhalt is a clash of contrasting architectural styles, and anyone visiting Magdeburg is advised to tour the entire region and take in the contemporary art and architecture of one of the most avant-garde regions in Europe.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
