“A Women's Place for Men too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

This former abbey on top of a tor is reached by a windy cobbled hill. It's worth the small trek for the view. Once you're up there, take in the superb cloister, and the evocative church... and I use that word in more ways than one. It's gentle reminder of a great deal of this areas long history, and very thought provoking. When we were there the oldest tapestry this side of the Alps was on display. This is much more exciting than I expected, for a start it's knotted like a rug rather than sewn, but the colours and perspective in the pictures seem to come from a much later time. Enjoy!

“It was not as great as I expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2012

The greates attraction, however, is Quedlinburg itself.
Church of St. Servatius is just worth seeing. There is also entrance fees which is unusual in Germany and expensive.
