Why we love it...

A magnifient neo-gothic house

The Place

Herr Wobst is a hands-on owner who lives in the greater part of this magnificent house, letting out just 12 of the rooms. It was built in the early years of the 20th century in a neo-gothic style, but fell into disrepair in the early 90s. The Wobsts came to its rescue in 1995, thoroughly restoring it over no less than six years. The house is set in parkland in the centre of Quedlinburg and is impressively decorated, with high-ceilinged rooms, some of them modern, some with period furniture. The dining room is especially fine, with stained glass windows and a beautiful domed ceiling. The bedrooms feature tasteful, neutral decoration complementing pretty stained glass windows.
The Markgrafen comes warmly recommended by our East Germany editors, and by a British couple who stayed recently. The latter noted that housekeeping and repair work may not always be up-to-the-minute because Herr Wobst likes to do everything himself. But we’ve always considered this a minor fault in places where the charm is genuine.
Quedlinburg, with its medieval half-timbered buildings, is an intriguing place that stretches out like a toy town: it was recently made a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site.
