Picturesque half-timbered houses, modern art behind ancient walls, romantic alleys with small cafés and restaurants, dominated by the Romanesque collegiate church: Quedlinburg is the living UNESCO World Cultural Heritage town in the northern Harz foothills! The different districts (including Bad Suderode and Gernrode) combine World Cultural Heritage with a spa town and nature- based recreation. The most important feature is the Old town of Quedlinburg with its 2,069 half-timbered houses spanning eight centuries. Yet, the town is alive: you can visit artists´ workshops, and the threetiered theatre offers a versatile stage program. You are also invited to feel the homely atmosphere during Advent season.
