Visiting Quedlinburg - an UNESCO World Heritage
Visiting Quedlinburg - an UNESCO World Heritage Reviews
Have your camera ready! Aug 22, 2009
The pretty town of Quedlinburg is located in the Harz Mountains and surrounded by attractive destinations.
The town is a quite popular magnet for tourists, which is no real surprise ‘cause even a short look is enough to notice the charm of this place.
Since 1994 Quedlinburg belongs to the UNESCO World Heritages because of loads of gorgeous and fascinating medieval houses and numerous half-timbered buildings. This place is the biggest open-air museum for architecture lovers, for sure. Even if you’re wondering how someone is able to live in these tiny and crooked houses you’ll be quite impressed by such a wonderful architectural style – interesting photo motives as far as you can see!
Quedlinburg, which was first mentioned in 922, is the ideal location to experience the past. Strolling through a maze of narrow but appealing alleys, having a look at a couple of antique shops, visiting the ancient castle, stopping at an inviting café or hopping on the tourist train are just a few of many excursions you can make.
Nowadays there exist different initiatives that are very interested in maintaining the old structures and the long-lasting ambiance. Even European investments are involved – it’s been a long way from the Middle Ages to a modern city but the aim hasn’t been reached yet. The plan is to combine the city management of the present day with these remaining historic resources.
You definitely won’t regret a stopover in Quedlinburg because there’re so many impressions to capture!
