Escorted Rail Tours to Quedlinburg

A relaxing UNESCO World Heritage site

Quedlinburg traces its history back as far as the 10th century and was at one time the capital of the Franconian German Empire. It has been a prosperous trading time since the Middle Ages. At the heart of Quedlinburg is its beautifully restored medieval Old Town. The quaint, cobbled streets are lined with immaculate half-timbered buildings and pretty, painted houses.

The quality and sheer number of these restored, half-timbered buildings has seen Quedlinburg awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. The Colliegate Church of St Servatius, located in the centre of Quedlinburg, is regarded as a true masterpiece of Romanesque architecture. Considered to be one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Europe, Quedlinburg offers a wealth of history and culture, whilst also having a modern flair and fabulous examples of Art Nouveau architecture.
