Quedlinburg - UNESCO world heritage
With its 21,000 inhabitants in the town centre, the widest selection of medieval half-timbered houses in Germany are to be found. The former significance of this city can be felt in every corner. Narrow and medieval streets attract to be explored. The roots of German history are to be found in this town.
At the beginning of the 10th century the first German royal landscape was built around the Harz with Quedlinburg being situated in the center. Here, at the royal palace, the Ottonian rulers celebrated Easter. In these parts, Duke Henry I laid the foundation for the unification of the German duchies, whereon his reputation as the founder of the German Empire is based till this very day.
The town is worth a journey at any time. The changing seasons develop a very peculiar charm in the context of unique cultural and historical testimonies. It performs an increasing attraction as well as a higher number of tourists every year. There is plenty of events to suit everyone’s taste: whether festivities like the " Advent in the Courtyards," in which the citizens of the town open their courtyards to the public, or the re-enactment of the royal Easter procession in springtime.
A visit to the countless sites such as the Church of St. Servatius with its Cathedral Treasury or the Lionel Feininger Gallery is always worthwhile.
