Goslar & the Harz mountains
Goslar can look back on a thousand years of history: it is situated on the northern edge of the Harz Mountains and has a unique, historical flair, with lots of culture and a wonderful city centre: it is rightly one of the top destinations for cultural and city travellers.
Countless half-timbered houses and works of art are represented in the old town, which together with the Rammelsberg mine has been a
UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.
The mighty Brocken, at 1,141.2 metres high, is the highest mountain in northern Germany, and is in the heart of the Harz National Park.
A wide range of hiking and walking trails and many sports activities in all seasons make the Harz a very special and popular holiday region.
