Göttingen Travel Guide: 48 reviews and 187 photos

I quite honestly believe that Goettingen is the nicest place to live in Germany. About the only thing Goettingen lacks is a beach -- well I guess you can't have everything! Apart from not being situated close to an ocean, Goettingen is a wonderful charming university town in the middle of Germany. Everybody meets in the pedestrianised old town which is basically one big shopping mall and at nighttime turns into a equally lively party zone. I miss it a lot.

    Nice tips on Göttingen, and fine photos! I often go through Göttingen on the train, but haven't stopped there for a long time. Must do so again!

    Interesting to visit? Definitely. The nicest place to live in Germany? Hmmm.... I'm not fully convinced. Nevertheless, your presentation of Göttingen is great!
