Angesichts der Bundesgartenschau 1999 wurde im Magdeburger Elbauenpark der Jahrtausendturm errichtet. Dieser ist übrigens das mit seinen 60 Metern Höhe das höchste Holzgebäude – nicht jedoch der höchste Holzturm – der Welt. Der Entwurf und das künstlerische Gesamtkonzept des Turms stammen vom Schweizer Baugestalter Johannes Peter Staub. || 📷: © @henningreichert

Als sich im Jahr 1980 der hansische Städtebund der Neuzeit DIE HANSE als Netzwerk für die Bereiche Kultur, Tourismus, europäische Völkerverständigung, Jugend und Wirtschaft gründete, konnten dort ehemalige Hanse-Städte auf Antrag wiederaufgenommen werden. So zählt nun Salzwedel wieder offiziell als Hansestadt. Neben den leckeren Baumkuchen der Stadt fallen übrigens besonders die Fachwerkhäuser ins Auge. Man kann auch der Straße der Romanik folgen, unzählige Brücken beschreiten, die norddeutsche Backsteingotik erleben oder die Vielfalt des Grünen Bandes per Rad erkunden.
So viele Möglichkeiten! || 📷: © @salzwedel_fotografie
