Emperor Otto I upon request by his mother, Queen Mathilde, had founded a convent for the education of young ladies of the leading families of the realm. It was another Mathilde, namely Otto I’s granddaughter, who became the convent’s first abbess. She also contributed decisively to making Quedlinburg a commercial regional metropolis, and she even held the helms of the imperial government while the emperor was on leave-of-absence in Italy to look after his territories there.

This is the only extant property belonging to the former “Holy-Ghost-Hospital” whose history dated back to the 13th century. It is located in a calm little dead-end only 200 mtr from the historic marketplace. The half-timber two-storeyed structure has an appealing triangular gable at the front with an inscription bearing the year of the building’s endowment 1713.
At the rear there is a quiet garden with a stately acorn-tree and access to one of Quedlinburg’s historic mill-runs. The building stretches to a length of about 30 mtr along the cul-de-sac. It is in fact a row-house which the architect has re-designed to accommodate three self-contained residences with separate entrances.
