“Beautifully preserved medieval town”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

A beautiful old medieval town that is very well preserved, a walk down the alleyways between woodwork houses and nice bars and restaurants is very highly recommended.

“GOOSE BUMPS!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I get goose bumps just thinking about this beautiful historic collection of buildings. It was awesome. We spent hours just wandering and looking at half timbered houses, stayed in one too. This is a dream town. It you like half timbered houses you really need to put this town on your list. Most of the town is restored and the historic houses seem to go on forever. Be prepared to walk and just take it all in. There are lots of visitors but it never seems crowded.

“The best "open air" museum you'll ever visit!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

With well over 1,000 historic buildings, you'll feel as if you are back centuries in time as you wander through the old town. And there are fewer tourists than in larger, more accessible cities, so you will have a very personal experience. If I could visit only one historic site in Germany, this would be it!

“A treasure that rewards wandering”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We spent 4 days in Quedlinburg, which made it easy to really explore all the beauties of the city. Stay in the Altstadt if you possibly can and just wander around enjoying the architecture. Try to walk into the courtyards, and make sure to walk up to the Schloss and look over to the Altstadt from the little hill that's nearby (can't remember the name, but there's a little sign about it on the road up to the castle.)
