Collegiate Church, Castle and Old Town of Quedlinburg

Brief description

Quedlinburg, in the Land of Sachsen-Anhalt, was a capital of the East Franconian German Empire at the time of the Saxonian-Ottonian ruling dynasty. It has been a prosperous trading town since the Middle Ages. The number and high quality of the timber-framed buildings make Quedlinburg an exceptional example of a medieval European town. The Collegiate Church of St Servatius is one of the masterpieces of Romanesque architecture.

I visited this site in the former East Germany in 2003, and it was a real surprise. I’ve never seen so many photogenic timber-framed buildings.
