Quedlinburg is a town on the northern part of the Harz Mountains, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. The town is located about 123 meters above sea level, much of which on the western part of the River Bodes.

It was the capital of the East Franconian German Empire during the Saxonian-Ottonian dynasty. The town propered on trade during the Middle Ages, resulting in a number of exquisite half-timbered buildings still visible today. One of the most outstanding examples of Romanesque architecture is the Collegiate Church of St Servatius in Quedlinburg.

The Old Town of Quedlinburg today has half-timbered houses from five different centuries, including one from the 14th century which is the oldest in Germany.

In 1994, the Collegiate Church, Castle and Old Town of Quedlinburg were inscribed as a World Heritage Site. This took place during the 18th session of the World Heritage Committee which was held in Phuket, Thailand, on 12-17 December, 1994.
