    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.
