The Herrenkrug is set in a mature forest outside Magdeburg Germany, but is not isolated. The tram line ends at the door, so it is perfect for getting around the city, to/from the train station and seeing all the sights without a car. The hotel is first class in every way. Service, cleanliness, food, rooms and common areas are to the highest standards and all rooms have views to the park. The hotel has a nice spa area with indoor pool, sauna, etc. Although the hotel is historic (Napoleon slept here), it is perfectly restored and rooms date from the 1990s when wings, designed to fit the original architecture, were added.. we found them exceptionally large, well designed and quiet. It is not an inexpensive place to eat, but the food is first class. Our rate included breakfast and it was sumptuous. No cheap plastic condiments...everything delicious.In the same park as the hotel there is an interesting Science exhibition, the history of inventions, in an unusual white cone of a building, as well as gardens and a summer slide ride.
In Magdeburg, walk from the cathedral to the town hall area along the water. You will pass the Allee Centre, the largest shopping area. The town hall has a good restaurant in the basement serving local food and across the square is a good pub.
There is a train called the HEX which runs to the main centres in the Harz. Magdeburg airport is now served by RyanAir, which means it is possible to fly to several other centres around Europe very inexpensively from Magdeburg. Berlin is 1 1/2 hours away. You can buy a rail ticket from Magdeburg to Wusterwich and a second day ticket that serves all of Brandenburg/Berlin from there at a greatly reduced fare.
