Quedlinburg, Germany. History, Travel and Tourism. Vacation Packages. World Heritage listed Quedlinburg is the must-visit village of the region, situated on a fertile plain at the northern cusp of the Harz Mountains. With its 1400-strong centuries-old half-timbered houses, an intact Altstadt (old town) of cobblestone streets and beautifully preserved Marktplatz, it also boasts a wonderful mix of original options for wining, dining and resting your head. Quedlinburg is a town situated just north of the Harz mountains, in the district of Harz in the west of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. In 1994, the castle, church and old town were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Several locations in the town are designated stops along a scenic holiday route, the Romanesque Road. In the centre of the town, a wide selection of half-timbered buildings from at least five different centuries are to be found (including a 14th-century structure, one of Germany’s oldest), while around the outer fringes of the old town are examples of Jugendstil buildings, dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since December 1994, the old town of Quedlinburg and the castle mount with the Stiftskirche (collegiate church) are listed as one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Quedlinburg is one of the best-preserved medieval and Renaissance towns in Europe, having escaped major damage in World War II
