Quedlinburg Castle Museum

The Castle Museum (Schloss Museum) in the St. Servatius church displays a gorgeous collection of golden chests, religious manuscripts, crystal bottles, ivory combs, and swords, many of which were encrusted with jewels, dates from the 10th, 11th and 12th centuries and has a rocky history. The treasure took a long leave of absence from Quedlinburg after the second World War and was only recovered after several decades. One of the oldest tapestries in Northern Europe, woven around 1200 A.D., “marriage” of Mercury and Philosophy, is shown in the museum.
