Experience the charming college town of Göttingen

Walk in the footsteps of Nobel laureates, marvel at magnificent half-timbered houses and visit the most-kissed woman in Göttingen. Göttingen is a picturesque college town in southern Lower Saxony. The city holds the state's oldest and largest institution of higher learning – Georg August University – and so college life dominates its culture. Quaint half-timbered houses fill the charming historic district. One of the city's most popular sights, however, stands in the market square, in the heart of Göttingen: the "Gänseliesel", or Goose Girl. The bronze fountain statue is famed as the world's most-kissed girl since tradition calls for every newly graduated doctoral student to climb into the fountain and kiss her. Popular destinations around Göttingen include Plesse Castle near Bovenden or the Kiessee Recreational Area. Nature lovers will also enjoy a jaunt to the Harz Mountains. The ideal home base for exploring this city on the Leine River is IntercityHotel Göttingen, conveniently located right by the train station.
