If visiting Goslar just for the day, and want to take photos of the lovely squares, characterful streets and beautiful buildings, do avoid Wednesdays. The streets will be full of yellow refuse sacks and big blue bins awaiting collection. Nearly every one of my photos...More

Especially on a sunny day, there are a few cafe’s where you can sit outside in the sunshine and watch the world go by. Stunning architecture to look at too.

A lovely gem of an event in the market Square in Goslar. Stumbled on it and enjoyed the clock striking 12mid day, the doors opening and statues depicting local life moving as the bells played a tune. If your in Goslar it it worth visiting

The Marktplatz is a busy tourist hub in Goslar, thanks to the Scheifer clock and the tourist information. There are lots of cafes and shops around to collect a souvenir.

Interesting to see the show on the hour while in the Market Place. Also don't miss the Golden Griffin atop the fountain.
