A good mood, fun with like-minded people, live music or disco sounds: this is what Goslar night life is like – small but with great style. Cozy pubs in the old city centre, modern cocktail bars as scene venues for young and old people alike, or the large-scale dance club just outside of town offer the right variety for a nocturnal stroll through Goslar‘s alleys.
The Harz mountains and Goslar stand for mining. The history of the Rammelsberg Mine is played out every day by the moving figures and carillon on the Market Square at 9:00, 12:00, 15:00 and 18:00. Legend has it that the horse ridden by Sir Ramm pawed the ground to expose the first silver vein.
TOUR | Take your time en route to Göttingen for a detour through the fascinating landscape of the Harz region. Take a ride from Schierke to the peak of the legendary Brocken on the famous Harzer narrow-gauge train. At a height of 1,142 metres, the Brocken is the highest mountain peak of the Harz mountain range.
The night comes alive in Göttingen. Cosy student pubs, international restaurants and fashionable bars. Not to mention lots of culture, variety and three theatres.
The most-kissed girl in the world. If you are lucky you may be in Göttingen to see for yourself the famous Gänseliesel Kiss. There is a long tradition that every new Ph.D graduate from the university has to kiss the statue of “Gänseliesel”.
