The MAGIC telescopes for gamma-ray astronomy in the very-high energy range are located on the Canary island of La Palma. They are two imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes with 17m diameter composite mirror dishes and ultra-fast electronics. Reaching an energy threshold as low as 50 GeV for observations at low zenith angles, they can close the energy gap between satellite-bourne and ground-based observations. A major upgrade program to improve and to unify the stereoscopic system finished in fall 2012. This talk will provide a review of the most important results recently obtained by the MAGIC collaboration with the upgraded system.
