Magniviertel (Magni District)

One of the oldest city quarters in Braunschweig is the Magni Quarter with its centrally located Magni church square and the Magni church, founded in the 11th century. The quarter is made up of a cohesive group of semi-timbered (“Fachwerk”) houses, which are home to small cafés and shops. Ackerhof 2 has the oldest Fachwerk inscription in Germany: Anno M CCCC XXX II (1432).
