The Town Göttingen
Göttingen is located on the Leinegraben on the border of the Leine-Ilme depression with the Göttingen Forest and is flowed through in a south-north direction by the Leine, the northern district of Weende by the Weende, several northeastern city areas by the Lutter and several western city areas by the Grone. A few kilometers further north, the Nörtener Wald forest adjoins. On the southern outskirts of Göttingen lies the Göttinger Kiessee, fed by the waters of the Leine, and three kilometers to the south is the Rosdorfer Baggersee.
The area belonging to Göttingen lies at 138 to 427 meters above sea level west of the mountains Kleperberg (332 m) and Hainberg (315 m), with the Mackenröder Spitze (427 m) on the eastern border of the Göttinger Wald being Göttingen’s highest mountain. In the city area as well as to the west of the Leine, with districts of the same name, lie the Hagenberg (also called Kleiner Hagen; 174 m) and about 2 km south of it the gentle elevation of the Egelsberg. Knutberg (363 m) and Kuhberg (288 m) rise at the western city limits.
The actual population of Göttingen is difficult to determine. Only about half of Göttingen’s students are registered as main residents, which means that the city’s actual population is probably about 132,000 (2014).
Göttingen has a history of more than 1000 years. In a document of Emperor Otto I, „Gutingi“ is mentioned for the first time in 953. Around the year 1200, Göttingen gained city rights. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the city experienced its first heyday, among other things as a member of the Hanseatic League. Later, economic decline, political quarrels and the turmoil of war caused the former trading metropolis to sink into a sleepy little country town.
It was not until the founding of the Georg August University by the Elector of Hanover of the same name in 1734 that a new upswing was brought about. Soon the Georgia Augusta was the most visited university in Europe. The „Göttingen Seven“ became a household name in 1837, when seven professors of the Georgia Augusta protested against the breach of the Hanoverian constitution by King Ernst August. As a result, they were deprived of their posts and partially expelled from the country. The list of well-known personalities, including more than 40 Nobel Prize winners, who studied, taught or worked in Göttingen is long. Today it comprises 14 faculties with about 24,000 students. Of great importance to Göttingen are the partnerships that
the city has entered into since World War II with Cheltenham in Great Britain (1951), with Torun/Thorn in Poland (1978) and Pau in France (1982). There is a town friendship with Lutherstadt Wittenberg in Saxony-Anhalt and a solidarity agreement was signed with La Paz Centro in Nicaragua in 1989.
The old town center, surrounded by the medieval ramparts, is home to several well-preserved or restored buildings. The landmark of the university town of Göttingen is the Gänseliesel on the market fountain in front of the Old Town Hall. Actually just a poor girl tending her geese, the Art Nouveau figure has long been the favorite of all newly graduated doctors. They press a kiss on its bronze cheek – as is the custom – after it has passed its exams, thus making it the „most kissed girl in the world“.
Parks and gardens
The city forest:The Kerstlingeröderfeld is certainly worth a trip for every nature lover. You can get there on a direct route via Hollandsgrund and then right via Borheckstraße. (approx. 3 km). If you are interested in the geology around Herberhausen, you should visit the information board at the edge of the quarry above the parking lot (approx. 500 m).
A visit to the game reserve requires some practice. The effort is rewarded: you will meet tame fallow deer and wild boar, which live in their natural environment on approx. 22 ha (approx. 5.5 km). After a short rest it is not far to the Bismarck tower, which offers visitors one of the most beautiful views over the Leine valley (opening hours Sat., Sun. and on holidays from 11:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.) (approx. 8.5 km).
The urban forest offers relaxation and recreation. Here you may relax from everyday life. Nature conservation will not and should not diminish your enjoyment of the Göttingen Forest. If you follow our requests and recommendations, you can enjoy nature and protect it at the same time:
- Whether you are running, hiking, biking or horseback riding: Please stay on the fixed paths
- Since your dog does not know how to behave towards wildlife, please keep him on a leash
- Please do not leave „civilization tracks“ behind: Bottles, cans and paper are a nuisance to humans and endanger wildlife.
- Please do not pick plants or take animals. Instead, take photos from the trail. This will help you preserve your memories much more permanently.
- The building of campfires is not permitted
