Mix of History and Modern Shopping Experience in Goettingen, Germany

Göttingen, NDS, Germany

We visited Goettingen during our stay in the Hannover neighborhood as a one-day trip. In the center of the main square we saw Ganseliesel- a statue of a little girl with a goose. It is a landmark of the town and the word is that ever graduating doctorate student from Goettingen University must climb the statue and kiss the girl for good luck. The town offers also Botanical Garden and several old landmarks such as St. Jacob Church, and Bismarck Tower that can be climbed to enjoy the view of the town and the neighborhood. We took it easy in Goettingen and shopped at the local Kaufhalle. To chill out, the town has multiple cafes and restaurant with local cuisine. We enjoyed cappuccino in one of them to perfectly finish the afternoon before driving back.
