Why wasn't Quedlinburg destroyed in the 30 Year's War?

What a wonderful and lovely place. To me this is the best visual definition of 'medieval Europe'.

Shouldn't a place so uniquely cosy and inviting be crowded with guests on a sunny day?

Pure awesomeness!

It's beautiful, and, compared to the hessian and rhenish towns I am currently presenting from time to time, Quedlinburg's old town is so big.

Because they were a "bunch of cowards" and preferred to pay ransoms required by the armies passing through. Quedlinburg was often used as a base and the Swedish were trying to turn it into a stronghold, but that plan was abandoned. The town still suffered dramatically, though.

By the way, most of those half-timbered houses do indeed stem from the years directly after the war - most of them were built between 1650 and 1700. Most of the men who built them (and yes, their names are known!) were born during the years of the war.

So, here are the pics of Wenigerode... only 2 years after I tooks them, lol.
There isn't much to say about Wernigerode. It's a small, cosy town at the foot of the Harz mountains. The old town is completely preserved and offers a large number of colorful half-timbered houses.
