Holiday information

 

Little-known Quedlinburg

Of all the medieval towns in the Harz, Quedlinburg is without doubt one of the most beautiful, as well as the least known. Spared from the devastating fires of the Middle Ages and the aerial bombardment of World War II, it is extremely well preserved, with the largest collection of half-timbered houses in the whole of Germany, as well as a stately castle and one of the country’s most important Romanesque churches. Your hotel is located in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Altstadt (Old Town) – a perfect place to begin your exploration…
 

Itinerary

  • Wernigerode to Quedlinburg: 20mins by taxi
    Today you will be transferred by taxi from your hotel in Wernigerode to Hotel Theophano in Quedlinburg. This historic, half-timbered hotel is located right on the medieval market square, a prime located shared by the Gothic town hall, with its colourful window boxes, and by the Zum Bär, a hostelry once frequented by esteemed writer and statesman, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. 

    You’ll receive a booklet of vouchers from the hotel entitling you to free travel on local buses as well as a range of reductions in participating shops and museums – including the Lyonel Feininger Gallerie. Feininger was a German-American Bauhaus artist and the gallery features some of his original sketches and watercolours, in addition to works by Kandinsky and Klee.

    For the rest of the day, we recommend losing yourself in the maze of cobbled backstreets and acquainting yourself with Quedlinburg’s excellent cafés, restaurants and food shops – where you may like to try the town’s trademark beer, Braunbier, or some of its specialist mustards.
  • The Schlossberg & Harz railway
    Today you may like to make the rewarding climb up the Schlossberg (Castle Hill) for excellent views over the half-timbered houses below and to explore the stately Quedlinburg Castle and the Collegiate Church of St Servatius. Consecrated in 1129, the church preserves many ecclesiastical treasures and is considered one of the most important Romanesque structures in Germany.

    If you have time, it’s well worth taking a ride on the narrow-gauge Harz railway. Quedlinburg station is the terminus for the Selketalbahn, one of the three lines operated by the railway, and which explores the wild and romantic Selke valley.
 

Accommodation

Please note: most beds in German hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.
