Budget design hotels in Magdeburg – your Motel One
Magdeburg dates back more than 1,200 years, and you can feel its rich history as soon as you step outside of your hotel and into the city. Situated on the bank of the Elbe river, our Motel One faces Magdeburg Cathedral, the symbol of the city and one of Germany's first Gothic cathedrals. Experience the tranquillity of this impressive place of worship and contemplate its many significant exhibits from various art periods. The early Gothic sandstone sculptures, famous statues at the gate and canons’ choir stalls grant you fascinating insights. If you fancy a coffee break between sights, drop into our comfortable One Lounge for a coffee.
The second architectural highlight of the cathedral district is right on our doorstep: the Green Citadel (it’s actually pink) is considered one of Hundertwasser's most significant pieces. Used as a residential and business complex, it is visible from miles away thanks to its eccentric architecture. Inside, you can discover hidden cafés, restaurants and shops. Another attraction within walking distance of our hotel is the old town hall, whose history dates back to the 12th century.
Reflect on eventful days – in Magdeburg and our One Lounge
If you would rather spend a day in nature, you won't even have to leave Magdeburg. Cross one of the bridges over the Elbe to reach the city park, a perfect spot for a long walk. Alternatively, meander along the newly developed riverside promenades and witness the changing face of Magdeburg. The river is becoming increasingly important to the city. It also leads you to two of the city's nightlife centres: the “Hassel” district is situated within easy walking distance of our hotel, offering a long string of bars and pubs. For a somewhat more alternative and artistic scene, head further south to Buckau.
There's no doubt: Magdeburg is a place for explorers. And it is best explored on foot. After a eventful and tiring day of walking the city, we will be delighted to welcome you in our One Lounge and serve you your favourite drink from our extensive menu. Reflect on your impressions from the riverside metropolis and start planning your next trip here: nobody visits Magdeburg just once.
