Visit the historic Rathaus...there is a great restaurant beneath the Rat Haus which is also worthy of a visit...There is a tourist office in the Rathaus and also occasionally special exhibits etc
Fondest memory: The narrow walking streets and the open out door market place
Favorite thing: Goettingen's old town hall and St. Martin's church make for a wonderful skyline against the summer sunlight.
Favorite thing: If you want to shop till you drop, go to kassel! in goettingen you will not find anything interesting nor arround the city! just lot of green!
