Time travel to Quedlinburg, Germany
At just 132 miles West of Berlin, it is like the imaginary town of Brigadoon has come to life. Unesco heritage site Quedlinburg is a breathtaking town that seems to have escaped modern days and still lingers in the late middle ages. Restored to perfection, the old buildings offer modern comfort behind their authentic facades.
I walked up to the castle on the high rock in the center of town and had a pint of the famous local 'Schwarzbier' while enjoying the views. Afterwards the leisurely stroll down the cobblestone streets and alleyways felt like stepping into a fairy tale. Like Brigadoon, the town is quiet and well hidden from the beaten track most tourist take. It's well worth a detour from Berlin, or from anywhere else in the world actually.
