The old town part of Wernigerode is a must with all the need shops and it’s very old town square. So much to see, wear comfortable shoes, bring a camera and stop for coffee at one of the street cafes.

I found out about this place from the article about the most beautiful small German towns. Wernigerode is really worth a visit. It combines castle experience with amazing medieval city walk.

The town itself with all the "Faxhwerkhäuser"(Half timbered houses) . Just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere, it is not so many German Towns where you get this old feeling with houses from the 16-1700 centuries.
