Beautiful (and original!) old town with quaint German half timbered houses and bits of history in surprising books and crannies. Fantastic to stroll about in, having a coffee or just touring

Breathtaking! Never seen a perfect old town like this! Go there off season like we did because this place is probably crowded during summer.

Quedlinburg reminds me of a quieter version of Bavaria's Rothenburg ob Der Tauber. Quedlinburg has it's tourists, but unlike Rothenburg tourist do not overrun it the busload.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent here, every small winding street has something nice to look at. This town is only suitable for people who are able to walk on uneven ground as the streets are cobbled and uneven at most times.

Fabulous old town,, lovely city, with lots of accommodation houses,, restaurants, Eis Cafes and shops. We stayed three nights, could have stayed longer. Our tours around the smaller towns in the Harz Mountains were equally enjoyable. A great tourist area.

Wonderful ancient buildings in this exceptionally attractive city. There are so many half-timbered buildings lining winding cobbled streets. It is a delight to walk around and quite a treasure to find in East Germany. Interesting to discover that this town was ruled by women for...More
