Göttingen is situated in the middle of Germany between the Harz mountains and the Weser river and is well-known for its University, famous for having produced 44 Nobel Prize Winners.

The historic city centre, enclosed by the remains of the mediaeval town wall, is home to magnificent churches and half-timbered houses dating from the 14th to the 18th centuries. All places of interest can be found within its city walls, and are at most a leisurely ten-minute walk.

Göttingen's landmark is the Gänseliesel fountain statue, to be found in the market square in front of the Old Town Hall. This art nouveau statue figures a girl herding geese. Traditionally all new doctoral graduates from the University kiss her cheeks after passing their examination. This makes her "the most kissed girl in the world". 

The Göttingen Christmas Market will be open from 25th November!

The rich cultural life of Göttingen, with theatres, orchestras, museums and large events evokes interest well beyond the city boundaries. Easy to reach by road or train, the cosmopolitan city is suitably accessible to visitors from all over the world.

Conference Venue

The MTSR Conference 2016 takes place at the Historical Building of Göttingen State and University Library (SUB Göttingen, Papendiek 14, 37073 Göttingen).

Pauliner Church (Historical Building). Initially, the Pauliner Church was part of a Dominican monastery founded in Göttingen in 1294. In 1812, the newly-created upper storey of the Pauliner Church became part of the library. Hosting the library's historical holdings, it came to be known as the Historical Hall. As part of the Historical Building of the Göttingen State and University library, today it provides a worthy setting for exhibitions as well as for scientific and cultural events.

Alfred Hessel Hall (Historical Building). The Alfred Hessel Hall, located on the first floor of the Historical Building, is available for lectures, conferences and event series on all opening days of the Library.

Travelling to Göttingen

Frankfurt Airport has its own train station with direct train connections to Göttingen (however some train connections require a transfer at Frankfurt central train station).
Travelling by plane within Germany is not generally practical, as this often takes more time than taking the train.
