Millennium Tower in Elbauenpark, Magdeburg

The Elbauenpark was created in the east of Magdeburg in 1999 in order to host the 25th Federal Garden Show. It has become one of the most beautiful and popular destinations within the region offering many attractions to its visitors. Visitors flock to the large park to enjoy the tropical butterfly house as well as the beautifully located Seebühne, a stage surrounded by a lake, and finally take a ride on the Panorama Railway to look at the park from above.

However, the ultimate highlight of the Park is the Millennium Tower which soars to 60m. It houses a unique exhibition which leads the visitors through 6000 years of history of human science and research. The tower, one of the highest wooden constructions in the world, has become one of the new landmarks of the city.

The annual main attractions include the Elbauennacht, a gigantic multimedia night-time event, the popular magic hot air balloon festival and a wide variety of open air events.

Hours: Elbauenpark: Summer 9am to 8pm, Winter: 10am to 4pm. Millennium Tower: April 22 - October 31, Tue-Sun, 10am to 6pm.
