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.
