Göttingen – The city that creates knowledge

City tourists appreciate the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the lively and bustling town, where students and international visitors mingle on the picturesque streets. The combination of tradition and modernity can be found not only at the famous Georg August University, but all over Göttingen. The old town charmingly brings together memories of the medieval merchants’ city and the flair of a modern shopping city. The lively side streets invite visitors to shop and discover, while cosy restaurants and quaint student pubs are a great place to spend the evening hours. The cultural offerings are extraordinary. Theatre, orchestra, museums and exhibitions entice visitors with exciting events.
