Goslar Old Town
Rank: Top 1000
Wonder Type: Cultural
Goslar is a medieval town in Lower Saxony and serves as a regional hub to the wider Harz area. It lies at the foot of the Harz Mountains (highest elevation 3,744 feet). Goslar is situated some 150 Miles West of Berlin. The nearest cities are Brunswick, Hanover, and Magdeburg. Goslar is much older than Berlin and worth a visit. If you are interested in history, outdoor pursuits (especially hiking), tranquility and nature, then Goslar is the right spot for you. Goslar is also home to the renowned Gose malted wheat ale that has in the last decade or two enjoyed somewhat of a renaissance.
