Historic old Castle that was really the home of the Abbess who ruled Quedlinburg. Lot's of history from the crowning of the first German King (start of the 1st Reich) and down through the centuries. Good views of Quedlinburg from the walls and a nice museum that told the history of the Schloss beautifully including the ways the 3rd Reich tried to turn it into a cult center. Not as richly decorated as some other castles but well done.

Along with the focal point in the Market Square the Rathaus and all the other buildings in this town are definitely worth a detour to see. Quedlinburg is No.1 in the top ten of “must see” towns according to a German newspaper, and I would definitely agree. Get along there by train or car and marvel at the buildings some dating from the 1500’s A great day out for all....plus plenty of cafes and restaurants.

My kids and I climbed up the tower and looked out over the city — it’s a great tower to explore. Each person needs to put a Euro in the slot, which is located to the far right of the gate (we didn’t see the coin slot at first, so thought it was closed). You walk through the parking lot and by the reception of the nice hotel to get there.

The church offers the chance to see multiple stylistic overlays as tastes in interior religious art and decoration changed over the years. I was impressed by the main altar, pulpit, and a older painted altar backdrop that is displayed in a side chapel. On a sober note, the names of members of the parish who died in WWI and WWII are displayed on several sets of plaques, the casualty toll is huge. Access to the tower was not an option on my visit possibly due to COVID19. Admission is free.
