    Junges Theater: Theatre for Young Audiences

    by RhineRoll Written Oct 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Junges Theater, G��ttingen

    The Junges Theater is Göttingen's second theatre venue behind the more traditional Deutsches Theater. The shows are generally more experimental, sometimes the experiment goes quite wrong, but hey, it's a young city and the young theatre is reflecting its eagerness to try out new things, to step aside from the trodden paths.

    But if in a performance the actors drop cow manure on you, don't blame me for not having warned you!!! ;-)

    Z.A.K.: Classic Pub

    by RhineRoll Updated Oct 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of my favourite Places in Goettingen is the Z.A.K. -- there's a genuine British/Irish feel to it, and the crowds are mixed -- mixed in Goettingen meaning students from all kinds of faculties. Pretty good food, and in summer you can sit outside.

    Dress Code: everything goes

  • Thanners: Best pub in town

    by John-Ryan Written Oct 6, 2005

    Thanners formed an integral part of almost every great night out I had in Goettingen when I studied there seven years ago, and it has continued to come up trumps on the various occasions I have been back there since. Its central location and vibrant atmosphere make it an ideal pub for meeting up with friends. It attracts a large student crowd. It stays open (and busy) pretty late, so one could while away the entire evening/early morning there. Alternatively, it is a good staging post before moving on to one of the nightclubs (some of which stay open until dawn, so there's no rush). One of its great attractions of Thanners is its layout, with tables of all shapes and sizes, affording you the opportunity to find a table that suits the size of your party. The selection of beers and other drinks is more than adequate. The music is upbeat, but pitched at just the right (relatively low) level to facilitate rather than impair good conversation. The only negative I can think of is that I'm not sure why its not even more popular. If Thanners was in Dublin (which thankfully it isn't), the patrons would be hanging out of the rafters.

    Dress Code: No dress code.
