Advent in the courtyards

Quedlinburg is hosting the festive event 'Advent in the courtyards' on three weekends before Christmas (30 November & 1 December, 7 & 8 December and 14 & 15 December 2013). On those weekends, a number of festively decorated courtyards, framed by centuries-old half-timbered buildings, will be filled with all kinds of stalls and pretty booths as well as an array of delicious food.

The old quarter of Quedlinburg is a UNESCO World Heritage site. There are three further World Heritage sites in the Harz region: the mines of Rammelsberg, the Upper Harz water management system and the old quarter of Goslar.
