Finkenherd, Quedlindburg, Germany (UNESCO)

This really small half-timbered house in Quedlinburg was built 1530 and  was declared a historic monument. It is located right below the castle hill. Legend has it that Duke Henry of Saxony was informed of his election as King of Germany right where the Finkenherd house is now standing.
The historic centre of Quedlinburg was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1994. I sent this card myself when visiting the city.
