"Quedlinburg -UNESCO World Heritage Site Since 1994" Quedlinburg by Mariajoy

Quedlinburg Travel Guide: 43 reviews and 113 photos

I visited this quaintest of quaint German towns during my train travels of East Germany. With over 1,600 half timbered houses and a castle, this little town is the epitome of a German picture postcard - but strangely, I wasn't compelled to buy any while I was here.

This Medieval town is reputed to be the Oldest German town with the smallest house in Germany (though I didn't see it, they all looked pretty small!). The first German King, Duke Henry the Fowler was crowned here in 919AD It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.

    You did a very nice job of showing the wonderful buildings and town sites. WE go to Dresden in May 2011, but feel this may be too far for our ventures. Thanks for the tour.

    That's my favorite town in the Harz Mountains - great architecture, stunning history but absolutely no nightlife! -- Very helpful tip on parking - I experienced the same - there is a no-parking zone sign when entering the town

    I was delighted to read this page because when I visited Q a few years ago, I forgot my camera. As it was Sat afternoon and al the shops closed, I couldn't even buy a postcard. Your photos are really beautiful :)

    I've never heard that strange name but now I have to find it on the map to visit it in future, thanks for sharing. Well, very elegant letter-ticket from local police, hopefully not very expensive.

    I'd love to go to this place. I once asked an old lady on an ICE train some years back about this city as she was reading a bocklet about it.

    This was one of the places in Saxony-Anhalt that I really wanted to visit, but it is such a pain to get to. I settled for Naumberg instead. Love the classic German pleasantries, which they always wrap around unpleasant requests... :)

    This town looks so beautiful ! Shame on me, I never heard of it, and only yesterday in a TV program (50 most favourite places in Germany). Good to see that you have been there and enjoyed it :-) It's on my list also now

    Thanks Maria for the birthday wishes ! They were appreciated (much much more than a Quedlinburger parking ticket would have been - even so nicely written) :-)))))))))))
