Quedlinburg is located in a specifically culturally rich area, to the north of the Harz Mountains. From here you can comfortably reach the many travel/tourist destinations in the East-Harz region. The 1000 year old diocese town of Halberstadt, with its world famous cathedral, the cultural cities of Bad Suderode, Blankenburg and Gernrode are all accessible within a twenty minute drive.
For nature lovers, we recommend a hike through the wild and romantic Bode-valley of Thale to the town of Treseburg, or a visit to the Roßtrappe. This one-of-a-kind wonder of nature, has inspired many poets, tales and legends.
For culture enthusiasts, the Quedlinburg town theater offers many highlights. For visitors who prefer a little fresh-air, we recommend a visit to the Mountain Theater of Thale, which provides lively culture under the open sky. The Rübelander stalactite caves offer their subterranean cave festival plays as a particularly memorable theater experience for young and elderly alike.
For fans of old machinery, the Selke-valley railway (Harzer Schmalspurbahnen), which uses the narrow-gauge Harz steam trains, takes you through the lovely Selke-Valley to the Caves of Harzgerode and Hasselfelde. The locomotives from the early 20th century now allow you to begin your trip directly from Quedlinburg.
