The last creation of the famous architector, You really need to see it first from the further points then closer. Every column, every window - everything is incredible!

This building when you first view it you think what on earth. But as you walk around it everything is most unusual yet very spectacular in a way. It has many different shapes and none of the windows appear to be the same. You can take some amazing pictures from different angles and from whichever angle the pictures are amazing... More

The day our group visited the weather was wet and windy and cold. But that did not prevent us from enjoying the whimsical nature of the building where we were told no 2 windows in the building matched. Nice courtyard in the center where we waited for the tour of the property.

There is probably everything you need within this interesting complex. From cafes to apartments to hotels, souvenir shops, bars, flower shops - you get the picture. Hundertwasser excelled here it is a masterpiece. Not a straight line in the thing. Innovative use of ceramics and just so inviting to visit. Well worth a viewing when in the city.

At first reluctant to even build it, Hundertwasser then created the probably most beautiful building of Magdeburg. Used as a hotel, appartments, even a little daycare is inside. Well worth a visit, the pictures of it will guarante you a wow-moment with your friends (and probably with yourself)

Again, great job by Hundertwasser. Liked the atrium with the fountain and cafés. Very cozy, especially in summer.

The last work of the delicious Hundertwasser ... Magdeburg's top tourist attraction, and rightly so. Give me Herr H and gis wonderful concoctions over Bauhaus and Gaudi any day!

Another of amazing Hundertwasser´s pieces! I love his creativity - pink color, golden details, flowers and trees growing from the building.

This is a much needed, new landmark for Magdeburg. The city is in the former East-German part and had been damaged during the war. As a result, there are some massive stalinist buildings around' and some other massive concrete and glass buildings from the 90's. Hunderwasser's building is, by comparison, an oasis to the eye. It is a happy, soft... More

Wonderful and I think the last Hundertwasser architecture. Delightful off balance doors, windows levels (even sidewalks). Nice stores and modest restaurants. A real find
