    North of the Schlossberg, the Finkenherd joins the Schlossplatz. Here are some very old half-timbered houses, which are dominated by the nearby castle and the collegiate church St. Servatii. According to legend, at this point in 919, the Saxon Duke Henry had been offered the German royal dignity during the bird catching. In addition to Quedlinburg u.a. also the Pöhlde in the southern Harz foothills, to have been the scene of this important historical event.

    The legend of the Finkenherd Quedlinburg
    During an excursion to catch birds, the Duke of Saxony, Heinrich, found out in the vicinity of the finch herd in 919 that he was going to be elected the new German king. This old legend makes the Finkenherd houses so famous and attractive for tourists and travelers. Unfortunately, other places also took the honor of naming this place, where Heinrich accepted the emperor's election, as a place steeped in history. Nevertheless, it is certain that Heinrich I is to be regarded as the founder of the city of Quedlinburg. Heinrich I was the first German king and founder of the later Holy Roman Empire. Heinrich's successor was his son Otto from his second marriage to Mathilde. There is also evidence that Heinrich enjoyed staying at the castle there. At that time, however, this castle was most likely in a different location than the present-day castle. The Finkenherd Quedlinburg was first mentioned in a document in 1678. It is also known that in 1588 there was a restaurant called “Finkenkrug” at this very spot.

    The Finkenherd is a very beautiful street worth seeing in the old town of Quedlinburg. Completely without order, many small half-timbered houses stand in a jumble. It has a special charm.

    The most beautiful corners can be found away from the already very beautiful market. Here the streets are narrow, like in the Middle Ages.
