Quedlinburg is a town located in Saxony, a mountainous land in central Germany. It was founded in the 10th century by local prince Henry the Fowler as a settlement of the Benedictine monastery. Shortly after the location, Henry's son built a castle of the princes of Saxony, thanks to which the town gained importance as a center of power. The medieval buildings of Quedlinburg remind us of its splendor. Narrow cobbled streets, along which there are half-timbered houses with pitched red roofs create romantic atmosphere of this place. Since 1994, the old town has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
