Welcome in the Culture|Youth Hostel Magdeburg

Directly in the city center, our hostel is an ideal base for exploring and experiencing Magdeburg, the “city with flair”. Our house is on a quiet street and yet allows you to leave the front door and set right out into the downtown district with its sights and shops.

The diversity of the city and the central location of the house, together with our numerous seminar rooms and rooms with private shower/bath, all combine to make our hostel an excellent place to host your seminar or conference. We also have family rooms on a family floor, making this an ideal place for your family trip as well. Whether you are joining us as a family, school group, or seminar group, ask us about our special programs and offerings – we love to help make your stay unique and special.


Magdeburg is full of surprises!

Magdeburg, the cathedral city on the Elbe, is a lively and attractive destination in every season.  Experience the diverse sights of the city, explore its history, and enjoy its contemporary culture.  

The capital of Saxony-Anhalt was an important centre in the era of Otto the Great and is located at the heart of the "Romanesque Road".
Discover the sights of the city, such as Magedburg Cathedral, the "Unserer Lieben Frauen" monastery, the "Green Citadel" Hundertwasser house and many more.

Several centuries of human history and inventions are documented in the Millennium Tower at Elbauenpark, and you can learn everything about the construction and functioning of medieval boat mills when you visit the historic boat mill on the Elbe shore.
