Goslar – World Heritage Sites in the Harz mountains

Goslar – World Heritage Sites in the Harz mountains

Goslar looks back on over 1100 years of history and invites visitors to travel back in time through the alleyways in its historical centre, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, along with the Rammelsberg mine. Over 1500 half-timbered houses, the historic town hall with its World Heritage Site visitor centre, and a lively café and restaurant scene are a big pull for visitors. With the Harz mountains right on the doorstep, there’s also plenty on offer for nature lovers and hikers. With their historical backdrop, the Christmas market and Christmas forest are a stand-out highlight offering a festive atmosphere every year.
