We live in the "new part" of town constructed in 1700-1800, on a quiet, green churchyard with close to no traffic (residents only). Being nevertheless in the centre of town, nothing is far and we highly recommend walking within the city (10 minutes to main square, market, and pedestrian area with shops, 2 minutes to swimming hall, 1 minute organic food store, 15 minutes to the castle and main parks).
Since this is the former Eastern part of germany, some UNIQUE SHOPS have survived the 20 years of modernization and are like a time bubble. We highly appreciate our retail shops kept by families in several generations.
However being the eastern zone of germany you will realize that COSTS FOR FOOD, CULTURE, MUSEUM ENTRIES, ACTIVITIVIES ETC ARE SUPRISINGLY MODEST.
OUr town centre and nearby cities like Wernigerode and Blankenburg are attractions close by, for nature friends, the Harz mountains are about 20 minutes by car for hiking, climbing, kid activities, cross country skiing etc., the Brocken (highest mountain, where the devil and witches are dancing during Walpurgis night) is a perfect hiking area, and connected to Quedlinburg through an historic steam railway, leaving from our station.
We have many castles and monasteries in our region and will leave the brochures upon your arrival.
