Collegiate Church, Castle and Old Town of Quedlinburg

Located at the foot of the Harz Mountains, Quedlinburg is a quiet German town that was once the capital of the East Franconian German Empire. In the past, it was famous for the quality and quantity of seeds produced and exported from here, but it now offers a broad range of cultural highlights to visitors.

The town centre is lined with well-preserved half-timbered houses – one of the main reasons why Quedlinburg has been given World Heritage Status. The other areas of the site are located at the top of a sandstone cliff known as Castle Hill. Here, an impressive Romanesque church stands proudly next to a Renaissance style castle which now holds a museum.
