Quaint Quedlinburg

By Linda Tancs

The Harz Mountains is a mountain range in central Germany in the district of Sachsen-Anhalt.  At its foot about 1300 houses showcasing centuries of architectual history grant Quedlinburg status as a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Its quaint half-timbered houses are a medieval testament to a bustling 10th century political and social mecca presided over by King Heinrich I.  For spectacular views, ride the narrow gauge steam train of the Selke Valley Railway on the line from Magdeburg at Quedlinburg station.
