Goslar - Emperor Town

Ever since the year 1009 Goslar has been the place for an Emperors Palace.

It was the favourite Palace from Heinrich II. The most important people of the time visited Emperor and town, Peter from Hungary was only one of them.

In the 250 years as Emperors Palace all the Emperors came often to Goslar. The town was a very important and powerful place in central Europe. Many of the decisions that shaped and formed the continents were made in Goslar. In the year 1063 in the church St.Simon and St.Judas the argument between the Abbot Wideradus from Fulda and Bishop Hezilo from Hildesheim started. This argument developed into what became known as Bloody Whitsunday.

A guided tour starting from the Tourist Information Center is a great way to learn more about the town and its history.
