Activities in Göttingen
Göttingen, situated in the middle of Germany between the Harz mountains and the Weser river, is well – known for its University, the fame of which is enhanced by 45 Nobel Prize Winners.
The historic city centre, enclosed by the remains of the mediaeval town wall, is home to magnificent churches and half – timbered houses dating from the 14th to the 18th century. Much of the urban life takes place within the old town walls. All places of interest are at most a leisurely ten minute walk.
Göttingen’s landmark is the Gänseliesel figure on the fountain at the market square in front of the Old Town Hall. This art nouveau statue figures a girl herding geese. It is a tradition that all new doctoral graduates from the University kiss the cheeks of the statue after passing their examination. This makes her “the most kissed girl in the world”.
