Well worth the walk to the top of the hill. Beautiful setting and views. information available in English. Informative but full of dates and sometimes a bit lengthy . Put this on your places to visit.

When buy your ticket buy for all three parts. The castle, the church and the crypt. This church has an interesting history reaching as far as Texas, U.S.A..

The church itself is very old, parts from the 11-12th centuries. It was used by the nazis during the war. Please have a look, and then turn to the "Schatzkammer". There are 3, all astoundingly interesting, From a pot from the 1st century, through gospel coffins (Evangeliars) to tapestries from the 12-13th centuries

The church is the 4th on the place. Has the tombs of Henry I and his wife and a little treasure chamber with the comb from the 10th century. In the crypt you could see rest of frescoes from the 10th century. However there is a steep hill to reach the church and it is not available if you have... More

A bit disappointed with the church, outside is old world structure, but inside appears to be modern. Some area's closed off - staff seemed more concerned about having correct ticket to enter naïve ( which we had ) All in all not that impressed

There is a fee to get into this church, and an extra fee if you want to see the crypt. At the entrance we were given notes, in English, about the history of the building. We felt very restricted whilst inside with stewards everywhere watching us. Also photography is banned. Why? There are a few treasures in display cases in... More

A pearl of Romanic. The complete church is marvellous. Surprising, I have never seen in a Romanic guide, but the Strasse der Romanik has a very good explanations about the monument

This ancient building, dating from 1179, is not longer used as a church but features as a centre for local concerts. The interior is fascinating, featuring furnishings and styles from another age. Individual family pews, with separate entry doors are a highlight. A beautiful pipe organ was being played.

Quedlinburg is impressive at the outset, and its obvious why it has UNESCO world heritage classification. Spectacular. The Church of St Servatius and the attached museum command a fabulous position with views across the surrounding area, and the church is impressive as are the treasures on display. What would significantly improve the experience for non-German speakers is to have the... More

We greatly enjoyed out hike up to the church and the castle. Buy the joint ticket. This whole site takes one through truly fascinating steps in German history, from the earliest times of the Monarchy through the unpleasantness of the late thirties and early forties of the last century. There are amazing things such as some of the oldest Biblical... More
