Municipality of Quedlinburg (Germany)


Population: 22.000 inhabitants
Area: 78 km2

Arms of Quedlinburg

The city and district town of Quedlinburg of more than 1000 years of history is situated in the heart of Germany in the State of Saxony-Anhalt in a valley-and-hill landscape at the north-east fringe of the Harz Mountains. No wonder tourism incomes provide the city’s major economical resource.

The town’s historic centre is rich of valuable monuments: its fully preserved medieval urban ground plan filled up with some 1.300 timber-framed buildings dating back to the 14th century along narrow streets and small squares makes Quedlinburg unique. Its Old Town, Castle Hill and Collegiate Church has been listed as UNESCO World Cultural & Natural Heritage sites since 1994.

Since the city of Quedlinburg hosts many public notably historical buildings, including its town hall and public school, that are highly energy-dependent and contribute to the increase of energy costs, the Municipality is looking for alternative and intelligent solutions guaranteeing a future-oriented energy supply for public buildings. Gaining experience from a first participation to an EU transnational project, the Municipality wishes through its contributions to GovernEE to increase awareness of decision-makers towards energy efficiency-oriented policies. It is expected that the pilot project concerning the installation of photovoltaic panels on historical buildings will serve as an example for the demonstration of the latest technological findings. It is assumed that investments in energy efficiency, the use of renewable energies as well as the utilisation of energy efficient technologies will be stimulated as a result.
