Quedlinburg is a little town that has rightly been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Never destroyed by war, the city managed to retain its medieval looks and beauty. It is one little wood-timbered house next to the other, all overlooked by the castle and church.
The whole city is a sight in itself, but the highlight for any art and history freak has got to be the treasury kept in the Stiftskirche.
Quedlinburg is served by two types of trains:
Most tourists will arrive on the regular train service, but for getting around in the Harz mountains the HSB trains form a nice alternative.
Travelling time from Berlin to Quedlinburg by regular train via Magdeburg is approx. 3 hours.
There are some long-distance buses from and to Berlin via Magdeburg run by the company BerlinLinienExpress. But the service is limited to 2-3 arrivals per week. Moreover departures back to Berlin are immediately after arrival, so it is not a good option if you want to make a day trip from Berlin. The only reason to take the bus would be because it is cheaper than the train.
Alternatively there are also local buses that connect Quedlinburg with some other small villages and towns in the region. The company that runs most of them is called QBus, they also operate the city buses in Quedlinburg. You can get the full schedule for all QBus buses for two EUR from the drivers.
Quedlinburg is relatively small with many pedestrian-only sections, so foot and bicycle are generally the best options of getting around in the city. A city bus serves those unwilling or unable to walk.
There are a number of small restaurants catering to tourists and locals alike in the pedestrian area of the town.
Supermarkets can be found in the industrial area near the Harzweg on the way from the castle to the train station.
