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

Perhaps the church is a little expensive to go in on its own but worth buying a joint ticket with the castle. There is a free English guide for the church (something rather unique in Quedlinburg) which is useful. Dont miss the treasure house within the church it is very impressive and listen to the shameful story of the American... More

Quedlinburg is a nice little charming town, under UNESCO protection. The church is nice, especially the view of the town from area outside the church. We didn't go inside as it was closed (Saturday afternoon).

Go in the morning as hordes of tourists later in day tend to detract. Hike up is nice and outside of castle and church very nice to see. Not much inside church and therefore any charge is too much. Museum a bit boring. Great views of city and surrounding city from area outside church

Walk right round the battlements first to get an idea of the setting; great views from the castle gardens. Very nice cafes below.

Very nice place and view. In the church was an exhibition about the Nazi period, which was very interesting and we were able to see original buildings from 936. Museum was a little disappointing and more meant for school children.

10-15 mins walk from Quedlinburg marketplace , easily located with a map of the town , though the city map is sometimes confusing . It is called castle but it is a church originally where the first king of Germany was crowned and thus have some importance back in the time . The church museum opens at 10 AM and... More
