World Heritage Quedlinburg

Quedlinburg, once the favourite Palatinate of Saxon Duke Heinrich and home of the first female German doctor Dorothea Christiane Erxleben is still impressive today with its medieval town plan and the many half-timbered houses from six centuries. Only 15 kilometres from Blankenburg (Harz), you can discover a vibrant UNESCO World Heritage Site. Museums, galleries, exhibitions, various concerts and the performances of the Nordharzer Städtebundtheater enliven the venerable city.

The Castle Mountain (Schlossberg) with the Collegiate Church shapes the cityscape of Quedlinburg from afar. The Collegiate Church, also called the cathedral, with the cathedral treasury belongs to the Romanesque Road like the Michaelstein Monastery. The Ottonian cellar vault can be viewed in the castle museum. The exhibition “In the footsteps of the Ottonians” is shown here.

The Selke Valley Railway (Selketalbahn) starts from Quedlinburg on a romantic journey into the Selke Valley, via Mägdesprung and Altenbrak to Hasselfelde. A ride on the Selke Valley Railway can also be combined with a hike on the Selke Valley Trail (Selketal-Stieg) and a visit to Falkenstein Castle.

Holidaymakers in Blankenburg (Harz) can take the HATIX bus to Quedlinburg free of charge.
