The settlement was first mentioned in the mid-12th-century, being built as a village surrounding the Plotho Castle. By the mid-16th-century it developed into a town and was first mentioned as Brandenburg in 1539. In the late-17th-century it suffered major two devastations - a plague epidemic (1682-83) and fire (1704). In 1743-45 was built the 15-km long Plauescher Kanal (first part of Elbe-Havel Canal) which connected Plaue (now Brandenburg) with the Stemme River (tributary of Havel) and Ihle River (tributary of Elbe). Both rivers were also expanded to allow commercial shipping as the new canal shortened the travel distance between Berlin and Magdeburg by 150 km (30 ml).

Town's best-known tourist attractions and landmarks include Kreismuseum Jerichower Land (County Museum themed on region's history), Sankt Trinitatis Kirche (18th-century church), Parchen Castle (19th-century), Wasserturm Genthin (20th-century, 48-m-high octagonal water tower), Synagogue, Dorfkirche Altenplathow (20th-century Romanesque church), Fiener Bruch (nature park). Since 2017, Elbe-Havel-Radweg (Cycle Route) connects Magdeburg with Berlin and runs along Genthin's portion of Elbe-Havel Canal.

As cruise port, Genthin was included in the 2019 schedules of some of Europe's largest river cruise companies, including CroisiEurope and Phoenix Reisen. Next tables show some of the aa-inclusive itineraries as riverport sequences and lowest prices per person (double occupancy).
