Visit to lovely Goslar and the Rammelsberg Mining Museum; Travel Blog


Germany – Mines of Rammelsberg, Historic Town of Goslar and Upper Harz Water Management System

Kisbee all excited again today as he came out of the garage. All fired up and ready to go for a ride.

Actually the ride was short, only a couple of miles along the road into Goslar.

What a wonderful place to visit. Designated Unesco World Heritage in 1992 all the streets are still lined with perfectly preserved timbered buildinsg. There are some real beauties among them. Wonderful carvings, painted decoration, some tiled all over in ornate slate patterns. We saw nothing out of place. No modern billboard to spoil the look, just an entire town of near perfect historic buildings.

The town has a wealthy heritage dating back to the 10th century because of the mineral mines on the edge of town at Rammerlsberg where silver, lead, zinc and copper were mined in abundance.
