Opening of the special exhibition "1100 Years of Goslar - Built with Success"

Goslar will be 1100 years old this year and can look back on a successful history. Emperors, poets, merchants and many miners shaped the city and its development over the centuries, with mining, power and law always being closely linked in Goslar. Special places and events characterize this development and we present them to you in the special exhibition "1100 Years of Goslar - Built with Success". The exhibition is decentralized and is shown at particularly striking locations - in the Imperial Palace, in the Goslar Museum and in the Rammelsberg Museum and Visitor Mine.

Cistercian Museum Walkenried Monastery and World Heritage Info Center Walkenried

Guided tour through the Cistercian Museum and Walkenried pond landscape as well as the World Heritage information center

The Walkenried Monastery has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Harz Mountains since 2010 as the oldest part. As early as the early 13th century, the Walkenried Cistercian monks developed the first water supply systems for their own mining and pond management, which are considered to be the forerunners of the Upper Harz water management system. The focal point of the "World Heritage" tours in the Cistercian Museum and the Walkenrieder pond landscape is the important role of the monks in mining and water management in the Harz Mountains. Short tours in the World Heritage Information Center also give an insight into one of the most diverse World Heritage sites in Germany.
