Recreational fun in the fresh air

Even a city trip can be relaxing! In the UNESCO World Heritage City there are many parks and gardens where you can recharge your batteries after a shopping or sightseeing tour. For those who want to relax more actively, the area offers a well-developed network of hiking and Nordic walking trails. The nearby Harz also invites you to many excursions and experiences.

Abbey Garden and Brühlpark

The abbey garden at the foot of the castle hill is located in the valley of the river Bode. In the 18th century, there were not only fruit trees and vegetable beds, but also elaborately designed pleasure parterres. Following the dissolution of the monastery in 1803, the garden was first leased, then sold in 1827 and used for commercial horticulture. As a center of seed breeding, it gained international importance.

Swimming and Splashing in Quedlinburg

All year round the World Heritage City Quedlinburg offers opportunities for swimming and splashing. The indoor swimming pool with its 18m long swimming pool has a constant water temperature of 29°C. As soon as it gets warm outside, the Osterteich and the Bremer Teich in Gernrode are a popular destination.

The Eco-Garden in Quedlinburg

The eco-garden in Quedlinburg offers a completely different kind of recreational fun. It is especially popular with children who can get to know the local nature better. There are many small biotopes to discover as well as a natural playground. For workshops the 4,000 sqm site offers three group rooms with an attached workshop area.
