The Romanesque Route
The touristic Romanesque Route recounts European history of a thousand years and offers the visitor sustenance for mind and soul. Magnificent edifices bear witness in stone to Quedlinburg\'s founding days: the Romanesque Collegiate Church on the castle-hill, the ancient St.Wiperti Church and crypt, and the Convent of St.Mary, the remains of which have been recently been made accessible to public viewing on the \"Münzenberg\" and documented in a small Münzenberg-Museum with an adjacent museum-café which offers a panoramic view of the historic town and the castle-hill opposite the \"Münzenberg.
On the castle-hill itself, the oldest Romanesque vaults beneath the Renaissance castle have been meticulously restored and opened to the public. They now accommodate an impressive exhibition of \"Traces of The Ottonians\" which provides unusual insights in the uses and abuses of history.
Don\'t miss excursions to further Romanesque monuments in the area- in Halberstadt, Gernrode, Ballenstedt, or the Burg Falkenstein. It is, for example, a mere 20-minutes\' drive from Quedlinburg to Halberstadt, whose bishopric dates back to the reign of Charlemagne and where there are important centers for research in Germany\'s intellectual history. Wherever you travel on the Romanesque Route, you will gain revealing insights into the Ottonian dynasty and its role in the early history of Germany.
