Church St. Wiperti

The Church St. Wiperti with its over 1000-year-old crypt is one of the last remains of this important Ottonian dominion. For Henry I (919-936) and his son Otto I the Great (936-973), Quedlinburg was the place where they celebrated Eastern most often. In Quedlinburg it was again the area in and around Church St. Wiperti, where they resided. Later on, a free canonical convent was built on this square, which was converted into a premonstratensian monastery in the 12th century. After the Reformation, which led to the dissolution of the monastery, the church was used as a Protestant parish church until the 19th century. It was then turned into a barn and later abused by the SS.

In the 1950s it was restored as a church and since then it has been used as a Catholic parish church in the summer months.
