Crystal Palace - 2008

The district originally belonged mainly to Sudenburg, but was largely undeveloped until the end of the 19th century. New buildings and streets were then built in the north of the district and thus south of the gates of Magdeburg, for which there was not enough space in the narrowness of the old town. The Kristall-Palast Magdeburg , a large event building, was built from 1889 to 1892 . From 1898 to 1905, the so-called Lenné quarter was built in the extreme northeast of the district , a residential area at the gates of what was then the old town. In the south, the Magdeburg University Hospital , initially as the Sudenburg Hospital, was located. During the GDR era, prefabricated buildings were built along Leipziger Strasse and in the Schilfbreite area .

Due to the history of its origins, the district still lacks its own center. The reference values ​​for the residents are more the smaller districts, some of which are expressed in the breakdown of the statistical districts.


In 2001 there were 478 member companies of the IHK and 82 companies of the Chamber of Crafts in the district . The university clinic and the institutes and research facilities attached to it are of considerable economic importance .
