Getting around Magdeburg is simpler and more efficient by car. Car hire services are readily available, and the recommended car class is compact or mid-size for the city's narrow and ancient streets.

Traffics Rules and Speed Limits

Buckle up and get ready to drive on the right side of the road, unlike the UK. In urban areas, the speed limit is typically 50km/h, while it ranges from 100km/h to no limit on the motorways. Always watch out for signposted speed limits.


Parking in Magdeburg is not usually a problem. Both on-street parking and car parks are available throughout the city. Note, there are some short-term parking zones (marked by a blue sign with a white 'P' and a red border).


Experience Magdeburg’s moderate climate, with warm summers and cool winters. The city comes alive particularly in the spring as the numerous parks and gardens begin to bloom.


Germany's official currency is the Euro (€). Credit cards are widely accepted, but it's always good to have some cash at hand for smaller establishments or outdoor markets.

Seasonal Events

Throughout the year, Magdeburg hosts various events. Don’t miss the Magdeburg Christmas Market, the Domplatz Open Air in summer, and the Magdeburg Marathon in October!

Surrounding Cities and Towns

You can also visit nearby cities for day trips such as Berlin, Germany’s capital, and the chocolate city of Halle. So, pack your bags, hire a car, and prepare for a memorable journey to Magdeburg!
