Study for the first time the possible very high energy γ-ray emission above 100GeV from magnetars, observing the sources 4U 0142+61 and 1E 2259+586. Description: We observed the two sources with atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes in the very high energy range (E>100GeV). 4U 0142+61 was observed with the MAGIC I telescope in 2008 for ∼25h and 1E 2259+586 was observed with the MAGIC stereoscopic system in 2010 for ∼14h. The data were analyzed with the standard MAGIC analysis software.
