Quedlinburg is a German, Hanseatic town located on the River Bode. It was founded by the prince of Saxony, Henry the Fowler in 922. The town hall located on the Old Market Square is one of the landmarks of this medieval town. The impressive bourgeois building is an interesting mix of architectural styles, as it has been expanded many times. The stone building is topped by a gable roof with small windows illuminating the attic. On one side of the town hall there is also a hexagon corner tower and a monument to Roland, the hero of the famous knightly ethos.
