Be tempted by the attractions of Gottingen from the comfort of our hotel
Famous for its old university, Gottingen boasts art nouveau architecture and plenty of traditions echoing the walls of its old streets. The University of Georgia-Augusta was founded in 1734 by George II of England; it is the oldest in Lower Saxony and one of the best in the world. It has a botanical garden dating back to the same date—one of the largest in Germany with an important collection of plants. The town hall is centuries old and has a famous statue of a girl with a goose, who is said to be the most kissed in the world. The tradition for many students, when they graduate from university, is to kiss the sculpture. Stroll around to be captivated by its beauty and don’t forget to drink coffee in a shop from 1876.
