There is a lot to discover in Göttingen – convince yourself by taking one of the numerous themed city tours or with a ride on the original London double-decker bus. Numerous attractions can be explored on a walk through the city center - from the famous Gänseliesel at the Old Town hall, to the Vierkirchenblick and to a multitude of sculptures and historic buildings, many of which hosted famous personalities and Nobel laureates in the past . The old botanical garden is also centrally located and invites you for a walk, as well as the Stadtwall (city wall). The old city cemetery with the so-called ‘Nobel Rondelle’ - a joint memorial to the eight Nobel laureates buried in Göttingen is also worth a visit.
