Göttingen

A university with tradition, charm and a high quality of life. First mentioned in a document in 953, the place was granted city rights around 1200 and flourished greatly as a member of the Hansa during the 14th and 15th century. Once the university had been founded in 1734, the city developed into a significant centre of science and education. Its imposing churches, impressive university buildings and half-timbered houses in the historic centre stand witness to these and many other important dates in city history. The city’s symbol is Gänseliesel, the “world’s most-kissed girl”, whose statue stands on top of the fountain in front of the Old Town hall. The extraordinary cultural offers in Göttingen are characterised by their great variety.

Goslar

Goslar, the city in which emperors once felt at home in days gone by is a fascinating tourist destination in this day and age. The town in fact looks little different today, characterised by its colourful timberframe buildings, narrow little cobbled streets and interesting architecture from all ages. UNESCO has paid tribute to the unique beauty of Goslar‘s old town, to the Rammelsbeg ore mine as a 1000-yearold industrial monument and to the so-called Upper Harz Water Management System as a natural energy supply system by jointly awarding them the status of a World Cultural Heritage site.

Hameln

He parades through the streets of Hameln in a colourful outfit, playing a happy tune. His story is full of mystery and does not end in happiness. Hameln’s rat-catcher is fascinating to everybody, whether young or old. Embedded in the gentle hills of the Weser Mountains region lies Hameln (population 60,000), on both sides of the river Weser. The historic city centre with beautiful sandstone and half-timbered buildings from the 16th to 18th century, the Pied Piper openair performance and the musical “RATS”, the glass-works in the historic Pulverturm, a boat trip on the Weser – you can experience all this in Hameln.

Hannover

It’s always the right season for Hannover: the capital of Lower Saxony offers you fascinating highlights at any time of the year. In summer, the Royal Gardens, a real gem in the city, become a fantastic stage for fireworks displays, drama, cabaret and concerts. The zoo with its species-specific habitats is Europe’s No. 1 animal park. The lake Maschsee in the city centre, offers relaxation and a wide range of leisure activities. Culture at the various museums, theatres and the opera also covers a broad spectrum. Events such as the International Fireworks Competition, the Maschsee Lake Festival or the world’s largest “Schützenfest” fun fair draw visitors en masse to Hannover every year.

Hildesheim

Hildesheim is well known in particular for its unique churches and cultural monuments. St. Mary’s Cathedral and St. Michael’s Church, both UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites since 1985, are masterpieces of church architecture and world-famous for their art treasures. The mysterious 1,000-year-old rosebush growing at the cathedral’s apse is, according to legend, closely connected to the city’s foundation. Visitors to the city are fascinated by the historic market square, feeling swept away to an age long past. The Roemer- und Pelizaeus-Museum captivates you with its significant ancient Egyptian and ancient Peruvian collections.

Lüneburg

What‘s special about Lüneburg? Quite simple, really: It‘s the charming contrast of the pulsating young ambience and the mediaeval face of a more than 1000 year old Hanseatic city. Visitors are fascinated by the brick buildings decorated with elaborate gables and one of the largest and most beautiful medieval city halls in northern Germany. But Lüneburg is just as lively in the modern age: trendy shops, a multitude of cozy pubs and a dynamic student scene are elements of the young face the city so rich in tradition shows today.

Wolfenbüttel

Wolfenbüttel: a city of half-timbered houses with flair. Situated between the Harz mountains and the Lüneburg Heath with easy transport access, Wolfenbüttel has a favourite place for every guest: at the magnificent Guelph palace, the world-famous library, in romantic „Little Venice“, but maybe also in a rustic pub in the old part of town, where after meals, Wolfenbüttel‘s most famous export product is served – „Jägermeister“. Famous people such as Lessing, Casanova and Wilhelm Busch also found their favourite spots here. And once you participate in one of our many attractive events and offers, you may suddenly realise: Wolfenbüttel is also my favourite place!
