The more than 1000-year-old city Quedlinburg is located on the northeastern edge of the Harz. The buildings of the Romanesque, 1300 half-timbered houses and villas of the Wilhelminian and Art Nouveau periods tell the history and culture of past eras.
The collegiate church of St. Servatii in Quedlinburg has been awarded UNESCO "architectural masterpiece of Romanesque art". It houses one of the most valuable church treasures of the Middle Ages. Legend has it that the king of royalty was also offered to the first king of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, Henry I.
The old town itself is considered by UNESCO as an "exceptional example of a European medieval city". In the city center around 800 houses are designated as a single monument. Here is also the "old Klopstock" to find, a half-timbered building which takes its name from one of the famous sons of Quedlinburg, the Odendichter Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock. Due to its almost 90 hectares of built-up city center, Quedlinburg, with its buildings from all periods of style and time, is one of the largest area monuments in Germany.
