World Heritage Information Center Goslar –

Your ideal introduction to the World Heritage in the Harz

 
You can inform yourself free of charge about the theme of World Heritage in a fascinating exhibition. Many of the exhibits are interactive.

The low-barrier Information Centers provide an overview of the UNESCO World Heritage and serve as a starting point for exploring the original settings of the World Heritage in the Harz. At the respective locations they provide the function of a "spotlight" for the places nearby and explain their special features. At Goslar, the places that are covered in more detail are the World Heritage Rammelsberg and the old town of Goslar.

The importance of UNESCO World Heritage Sites for the entire world community is also presented – World Heritage belongs to everybody and connects people with each other across all borders.

3D model, video projection and media terminal


At the heart of each World Heritage Information Center is a 3D landscape model with video projections that clearly illustrate the process of change that has taken place in the 3000-year-old cultural landscape of the West Harz. The interrelationship between man, nature and technology is put into context in terms of time and content. The film offers guests a unique possibility to gain a bird's eye view of the entire World Heritage in the Harz and its underground dimensions, and also to get to know its impressive history.

At a media terminal visitors can inform themselves in detail about everything that is offered and all events in the World Heritage Site. They can then leave the World Heritage Information Center with an individually compiled itinerary and information, and then explore the World Heritage directly on location.
