    This way is strange. He starts in a house on the market and ends in hell.Why is the street called Hell? Nobody knows. But the wandering monk told me that at that time the poor people were heating with peat, obtained directly at the Bode. When a fresh peat was thrown on the fire, it was like throwing a tear gas bomb into a closed room. The rest can be imagined.This path is called Schuhhof. The entrance starts here through the house "Markt 52".

    The road "Hell" is located in the north of Quedlinburg. It is about 535 meters long.
    Hell 11 is the address of the Höllenhof, a Grade II listed UNESCO World Heritage building in Quedlinburg. The road "hell" leads to the street "Pölle".
    "In a document from the year 1233 is the mention ... of a farm and a house in the Pölle, the hell are Infernus, which is attributed to the Höllenhof." (Https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Höllenhof_(Quedlinburg))
    In the school yard 3-6a there is the half timbered hotel Vorhof to the hell. The name is historically justified because the alley next to the hotel has been called "hell" since the Middle Ages.
    In the forecourt to this hell lane are four former artisan houses in which
    Once a Quedlinburg shoemaker lived and worked, which were transformed into a modern individual hotel.
    The guests live there absolutely quiet and are nevertheless in the center and directly next to the market square.

    Ok, after the pictures are not just about hell, I've also added a few from the Old Town.
