Introduction

Quedlinburg is an exquisite half-timbered town that grew around a 10th-century imperial abbey for women. A real time capsule, this medieval jewel was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1994.

Several of the town's Romanesque buildings are part of the Romanesque Road, holiday route within Saxony-Anhalt. Among them are St Servatius' Church on the castle hill, St Wigbert's Church, down the valley, and St Mary's Church, on the Münzenberg.
