Description

The outstanding universal value of Quedlinburg is based on its equal importance as an influential site of German history and an outstanding monument of the history of urban development. Its temporary role as the capital of the East Franconian German Empire at the time of the Ottonian ruling dynasty is verified by numerous sources and reflected in its urban structure and buildings. A widely visible testimony to the historic significance of the prebendary rule is the mighty Collegiate Church St. Servatius with the castle standing in solitary size and splendour above the old town.
