Hello,in December my mum and I are visiting and staying in Goslar,can you recommend any nice and reasonably priced cafes and restaurants,also what shops are in Goslar,finally what is the weather like at this time of year ,we are travelling on the 6th of December,we have been to Goslar before but it was in 1978,so I expect it has changed a bit!!! Thank-you for your help.
Re: shopping !!!!!
6th of December is a Sunday so not much shopping except souvenir shops, most of which can be found along the street between market square and Kaiserpfalz, and of course the Christmas market.
The weather is impossible to predict a month in advance.
Travel Tips for Goslar
The Botero Couple
Worried about your model figure, diets etcetera? Why?
The two sculptures by Fernando Botero, the well rounded "Man with cane" (1977) and "Woman with umbrella" (1980), enjoy their walk in the city without worrying about their weight...
Location: Rosentorstraße near Neuwerk church and registry office.
Christmas decorations abound ..
Goslar is host to one of the best known Christmas Markets, but the decorations are not limited to the center. Nor, as you can see from this picture, are they limited to the sides of the houses -- check out the roof :)
A Wombat In Goslar
On a freeeeezing cold day in late December we went to Goslar to see this pretty old town. This trip was, in fact, my Christmas gift from Mommy. She knows that travelling and seeing new places means more to me than anything else, even food.
I had seen Wolfenbüttel before and found it wonderful, but Goslar is even more amazing. The medieval Emperors loved the place and built their castle here. The old town with its narrow lanes (yes, cobblestone!) is full of half-timbered houses. Then there are several Romanesque churches. I even got to see the old meeting hall of the town council with its medieval paintings on the walls and ceiling - understandably we were not allowed to take any photos there so I cannot show it to you. You'll have to go and see it yourselves!
For detailed tips and background information to plan your visit, have a look at Mommy's Goslar page.
