Historic Town of Goslar –

a fascinating mediaeval townscape


Goslar's thousand years of history have been shaped by mining. Still today, evidence of its economic and political importance can be seen everywhere in the historic town centre: the Imperial Palace (Kaiserpfalz), the historic Town Hall, the churches, the town defences, houses of wealthy individuals and guilds as well as more than 1500 half-timbered buildings from the 15th to 19th centuries await your visit. In 1992 the Historic Town of Goslar was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
