UNESCO-World-Heritage-Site in the Harz region - Old Town of Goslar

The old town of Goslar, which is still largely surrounded by ramparts and green areas, is one of the most important, completely preserved historical towns in the world.


On a medieval ground plan, 1,500 half-timbered buildings dating from the 15th to 19th centuries are preserved on just one square kilometer. The Romanesque churches’ mighty towers soar above the enchanting townscape with its narrow streets. 

An unusually large number of medieval buildings have been handed down through generations to the present day with the imperial palace, town hall, town fortifications, infirmaries and the wide array of medieval dwellings made out of stone, the so-called bowers. The market fountain, crowned with the town’s emblem, a gilded imperial eagle, is one of the biggest and oldest preserved in Germany and is considered as one of the most important bronze casting works from the Romanesque period.
