Today was cold but dry and off I went to Magdeburg . The main reason being to see the ´Green Citadel or Die Grüne Zitadelle. Designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser it was his last project before his death in 2000.Why green you may ask as the building is pink? Answer being pink is seen as a natural colour and the construction has so much greenery worked into and around it . As we are in winter , not so obvious but a return journey is already turning over in my mind .,Magdeburg is spacious and has a friendly atmosphere .There is so much in the way of wonderful architecture and yes , SHOPS .......By the way as my Panasonic is away at the Pansonic Centre I am having to use my very old , low tech camera .My philosophy being it's better than none .
