The first capital of Germany, Quedlinburg is a storehouse of German history from past eras. The old town, the renaissance-style castle, and the stunning Romanesque church were all designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1994. Visitors will love exploring the cobblestone streets of the old town, the 1,000-year-old church situated atop a sandstone cliff, and the stunning castle along the scenic Romanesque Road.
The collegiate church of St. Servatius, a well-known cathedral treasure, the Roman Catholic Church of St. Wiperti, and the remains of the Marian monastery well-preserve Germany’s history. Other activities include exploring the 1,300 timber houses which date back to the 8th century, canoeing on the Concordiasee, or hiking in Selketal-stieg.
