    This place below the abbey was the home of gamblers, jugglers and day laborers in the Middle Ages. This place was so dangerous that it had its own jurisdiction and town hall. It was built on the base of the old St. Mary's Abbey and is now a residential area.
    It's worth walking over it.

    The Münzenberg rises directly opposite the Schlossberg. In 986, the first abbess of the Quedlinburg Frauenstift, Empress's daughter Mathilde, together with her sister-in-law, the Empress Theophanu, had the Marienkloster built here. The nuns were to take care of the salvation of the late Emperor Otto II. Until the introduction of the Reformation, the Romanesque Marienkirche on the Münzenberg formed the counterpart to the collegiate church on the Schlossberg. At the end of the 16th century, tinkers, scissors grinders, peddler and beggar musicians built their small, narrow-chestded houses in the already dilapidated monastery buildings. Today, the monastery church is partially accessible again. A museum provides insights into the eventful history of the Münzenberg and the architectural history of St. Mary's Church. In the former monastery kitchen with its quaint chimney, an attractive apartment has been created. A splendid view of the city and the castle invites you to linger over the 107 steps.

    The view from the coin mountain on the city and Schlossberg is impressive.

    The coin mountain with the museum is very worth seeing! These little houses are just great! Nice also the view to the castle mountain. Here you can find photo motifs without end!

    In the past people lived here who didn't want them in the city.
    Now it is a very nice residential area with holiday homes.

    Anyone visiting the old imperial city of Quedlinburg cannot avoid climbing the Schlossberg. Awesome, he is enthroned over the ancient city. The mountain lying to the west of it is often overlooked. Certainly wrong, because the Munzenberg is probably the most beautiful and romantic part of Quedlinburg. And it also has a very old history that goes back to the early Middle Ages, if not even further.
    In the past, before the Reformation, Munzenberg was home to a convent, which was then abandoned. From around 1580, artisans, artists and other ordinary people began to settle on the Munzenberg by building their own houses from the remains of the monastery. This ensemble of small, individual houses that are built close to each other has been preserved to this day. In recent years, the entire mountain with streets, stairs and all buildings has been completely renovated and restored. A gem with an incredible charm has emerged that is second to none. The romantic will be just as enthusiastic as the architecture or history lover.
