My Trip to Goslar

Yesterday I was in Goslar and there I bought some cards for my collection.

The Market Church of Goslar was first mentioned in 1151. It is known for its Romanesque windows. 

The Imperial Palace of Goslar was the favourite residence of the Salian emperors. It is the oldest, largest and best-preserved secular building in Germany.

In the Middle Ages Goslar was home to the largest Romanesque church in Northern Germany, the Collegiate Church of Saint Simon and Saint Jude. Due to its decrepitude it was demolished in the 19th century. Today only the porch is left.

The Pewter Figure Museum is housed in the old Lohmühle. It displayes the history of Goslar in dioramas with pewter figures and is said to be the most beautiful museum of its kind in Germany.

The Goslar Museum is a historical and geological museum. It was opened in 1922. Its collection include important medieval artworks from the Collegiate Church of Saint Simon and Saint Jude.
