Monuments in Quedlinburg

The World Heritage City Quedlinburg offers a wide variety of history and urban life. Small and large monuments are scattered throughout the city. Let us invite you on a short tour and enchant you by the individual monuments and their history. Get to know the first German female doctor Dorothea Christiane Erxleben, the dog Quedel, the Quedlinburg heraldic animal, and be there when the imperial insignia is presented to the Duke of Saxony Heinrich I. The Münzberg musicians shine in new splendour after a renovation made possible by the Bürgerstiftung für Quedlinburg.

On the northern outskirts of the city there is a monument to the prison camp camp of the First World War, which was built in 1915.
