Nordturm der Marktkirche, Goslar

4.6
#3 of 8 in Sightseeing in Goslar
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
