This little square lined with beautiful historical buildings and with a charming fountain in the centre really lives. There are several option for refreshment, either one of restaurants and cafes with the outside seating or just drink or ice cream to go. Although it can be very crowded at times it is always enjoyable.

Goslar is a very nice town at the putskirts of Harz in Germany. The centre of twon is well-preserved not least around the Marktplatz. For people travelling with elevtric vehicle, please be aware that in the whole of the town there is only 2 places (with 2 stations each) you can charge your car. All 4 places were constantly occupied. At 2 places you need a local app and the other is located in a tiny parking spot where it is impossible to place you car if the charging is at the rear. For Tesla owners there is an opporinuty wuth the Tesla Destination Centre at Mauerstrasse; it cost 25 Euro for 24 hours and inclues free electricity.

The market square at Goslar is surely one of the most impressive and well preserved medieval squares in Germany, if not Europe. Its Unesco awarded is really worth for its gorgeous and stunning wood carving, painstakingly crafted wooden works and awe-inspiring architecture. The town hall looks really beautiful along with many builds around the square.

Sitting outside one of the bar restaurants in the marketplace sipping a coffee or a locally brewed beer waiting for the the clock bells to ring on the hour, then little figures emerging from the doors depicting the history of Goslar. Very entertaining, love this town!

I was in Goslar at the beginning of December when the Christmas market was already opened. It was the best place for Christmas mood! At the central square of Goslar were thematic „shops“ with one million kinds of hot wine (glühwein), gooood German sausages, grilled meat and vegetables, cacao and a lot of alcohol free drinks for young people or drivers :)
All this atmosphere is with Christmas songs, carols and smiling people wishing you to have good evening!
All buildings around Marktplatz are from the 15-16th century and are under the defence of UNESCO and each of them is worth to see it!!!
One of the best places to enjoy Christmas Marktplatz is the tower of the Dom near the square, but the best time is in the evening when the Christmas lights are on. The tower is open till 19 o’clock and the entrance costs 2.50€/adult. As a gift with entrance you will receive the post card of the tower with the stamped date of your visit.

Trendy, roomy restaurant serving many great flavors. Many types of pizza, pasta, & salads & steak dinners along with a full bar. There’s a large seating capacity inside & out. The wait staff are friendly & courteous, even speaking some English. Our meals were very tasty, the beer great. They do a good business for a great price.

After visiting the church, they continued to wander the old city, which is still surrounded by a rifle with an impressive system of fortifications. It is one of the most preserved historical cities in the world, so UNESCO gave the medieval city the title of World Heritage Site in 1992. You can start your tour of the Old Town in the market square, see the old town hall and be impressed by the various ancient buildings scattered throughout the city.

The Building housing this attraction is one of the older well preserved buildings facing the city square. At certain times on the hour (we were there at 3.00pm) the clock strikes and doors at the top open to a parade of figurines depicting the mining history of the town. It is a nice atmosphere to be in this lovely square to view this attraction and if you are there close to the hour, it is nice to watch and should not be missed.
