Nordturm der Marktkirche, Goslar

4.6
#4 of 15 in Things to do in Goslar
An almost castle-like church built in the 11th century, Nordturm der Marktkirche is known for its stained glass windows from 1250, nine of which depict scenes from the lives of the two church saints, Cosmas and Damian. Admire the ornate design of the 16th-century baptismal font--but don't forget to look up to see its matching lid suspended from ceiling. Hike up the 230 steps of the church's north tower, and you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the town and surrounding area. A visit to Nordturm der Marktkirche represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Goslar trip builder to plot your vacation.

    Interesting organ, beautiful window as meditation pictures and a beautifully carved Baroque altar, which shows the crucifixion of Jesus. There are paintings by 1480, representing the first 7 of the 10 commandments on the wall. Also worth watching, the old baptismal font from the 16th century.

    Nothing in the world would have to stop me, to climb this tower. The view from outside into the air fascinated alone. The climb is somewhat tedious, you can click but in-between again. Once at the top and it is more than rewarded for the effort squeezed through the narrow hatch. It's very generous here above and the open "fence" conveys a feel completely free to stand. You should be afraid of heights. Of course, I have perpetuated during the descent in the guestbook.

    During a visit to the Christmas market Goslar went. Around the Church, stands of the Christmas market and the klippe, but now klippe, dolls, not had a real goat. The Church itself is notable as it is not scenery surrounding the half-timbered Church and surrounding buildings and a very nice atmosphere.

  • The organist seems to play for several hours each day for his own pleasure on the organ. The interior of the Church is typically Lutheran Spartan but with a beautiful painted pulpit. Fantastic!
  • An impressive church!
  • Great
  • Fantastic view!
  • The tower as a tower, but it's worth it to come to see the beautiful panorama of the city. Fun fact: all the stairs are numbered and there are 231. Ticket price for 2.5 eur adults, 1.5 eur children.
