Quedlinburg Castle is a large Renaissance style palace in the centre of the old town, on the other side of the hill to St. Servatius church. The castle dates from the 16th- to 17th centuries. Currently the castle is a museum which shows off the restored rooms of the building, each with original furniture and art works.
One of the world's most important collections of prints by Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956), which was once the private collection of Dr. Hermann Klumpp, who was friends with Feininger and his wife Julia. The biography of the German-American, Feininger is closely connected with the history of Europe, and his style influenced the Bauhaus teaching methods of many contemporary artists.
The birth house of the poet Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock was built around 1560. Since 1899, the Klopstock House has presented a biographical/literary historical museum into the poet's life and work. His epic creation "The Messiah" and his lyrical work (odes, hymns, elegies, and songs) mark a turning point in the history of German poetry.
