Sights

One of the nicest things to do in Goslar is to wander through the historic streets around the Markt. Hotel Kaiserworth on Markt was erected in 1494 to house the textile guild, and sports almost life-size figures on its orange facade. The market fountain, celebrating Goslar’s status as a free imperial city, dates from the 13th century. Opposite the Rathaus (town hall) is the Glockenspiel, a chiming clock depicting four scenes of mining in the area. It plays at 9am, noon, 3pm and 6pm.
