Cities in the Harz with a lot of charm and history.

World Heritage City - Quedlinburg

A beautiful old town that was rebuilt and maintained with a lot of love and commitment. During a guided city tour or the night watchman tour, you can learn really interesting things about the city and its history.

It gets very romantic in the Advent season, when the city is transformed into a Christmas country.

There is more information about this here:


This magnificent half-timbered town is only 30 minutes from Treseburg and should not be missed. The castle and the city center, with the many half-timbered houses and the impressive town hall, are absolutely worth seeing.

The Baumkuchenhaus is right on the outskirts of Wernigerode. Anyone who knows and loves Baumkuchen has to go there. If not - also.

Visible from all directions and the symbol of the city - the Halberstadt Cathedral with its treasury. Also impressive are the Liebfrauenkirche, the only four-towered Romanesque pillar basilica in Central Germany and the St. Martinskirche with its towers of different heights. In the Berend Lehmann Museum, visitors can learn more about the Jewish quarter and the almost 800-year history of the Jewish community in the former episcopal city.

Stolberg is a climatic health resort and historical European city and is also the birthplace of Thomas Müntzer. Martin Luther was also seen here and preached against the peasant revolt in 1525 in St. Martini Church. Stolberg Castle has been enthroned above the city since around 1200 and offers a great view over the roofs. Juliana von Stolberg and Wernigerode was born here in 1506. She spent the first 13 years of her life in the count's palace complex. She is the mother of William of Orange and is still revered as the ancestress of the Orange family.

The Großer Auerberg (579 m) rises not far from Stolberg. On it is the 38 meter high lookout tower called Josephskreuz. It is the largest double iron cross in the world.
