Collegiate Church St. Servatii

Short facts

  • Quedlinburg

Visitors to the collegiate church of St. Servatii are always amazed at the sight of the mighty church interior with its beautifully crafted capitals.

On the other hand, the treasures of goldsmithing and ivory carving from the exquisite church treasure are delicate. The precious ceiling frescoes in the hall crypt with the tomb of King Heinrich I. and his wife Mathilde, the typical round arches in the church interior and the stocky, defiant exterior of the church will always be remembered by those who have seen them. The Romanesque style was the first uniform architectural style in Europe since antiquity; the buildings were constructed at a time when spiritual and secular power were still in one hand and the most diverse - Late Antiquity, Byzantine, Italian - influences of the power circle of the time were reflected in the overall works of art. And one of the most beautiful examples of this epoch can be found in Quedlinburg as part of the UNESCO World Heritage: St. Servatii on the Schlossberg.
