Activities in Quedlinburg

Quedlinburg is located on the "Romanesque Road" in the north of the Harz region. The old city has a medieval flair with its many timbered houses and romantic alleyways and street corners. There is a lot to discover both inside the city walls and in the surroundings.

Quedlinburg offers an extraordinary wealth of historic and architectural sites and art. There are over 1,300 timbered houses from different centuries to marvel at, roman and gothic churches, watch towers along the city wall and a "Stone Roland", a statue that symbolises a city's right to hold a market, on the market square. The world-famous cathedral treasury, which is on show at the collegiate church on the Schlossberg cliff, is unique in the world.

Traditional craftsmanship and modern art are on offer in the picturesque narrow alleys. The most fascinating thing about Quedlinburg is that there is so much to discover in back yards, behind doors and gateways. The Klopstock House, the castle museum with its exhibition on the Ottonians, the museum for timbered work and toy museum are other attractions that draw visitors to Quedlinburg.
