Weekend Getaway in Goslar (Harz Mountains)

Happy Monday everyone! As announced on instagram I will share a few impressions from our little weekend getaway to Goslar in the Harz Mountains today. The Harz Mountains are somewhat in the middle of Germany and I have been there twice already, yet never in the city of Goslar.

Goslar has some 50.000 inhabitants and yet it is one of the biggest cities in the area. Since it is somwhat touristic it feels much bigger than it is. What surprised me most was that there even is a really good vegan restaurant in the city. In case you ever visit Goslar, make sure to visit the Soup & Soul Kitchen. I had a delicious cabbage and mango salad and some soba noodles with veggies and a turmeric-coconut sauce. I rarely eat out in restaurants because, to be honest, I don`t like to spend money on food that a. I could make better myself b. is unhealthy/has too much salt/too much oil/etc. c. is not organic. The Soup and Soul Kitchen inspired me and the food was just how I like it.

Okay, but now to the old town of Goslar. I have never visited another city in Germany which is that intact. During the Second World War many inner cities in Germany were destroyed and even though you will still find a lot of old houses, there are also many “new” (build after the war) buildings all around most inner cities. Goslar’s city center consists of like 95% reeeeaaaally old houses. Our air bnb was located in a house from 1585!

We visited on a really rainy day and yet it was so beautiful! I brought my green rain coat and felt all cozy inside 😀

We only got to spend one day in Goslar because we had to move on to another event on Sunday. Where and what? I will share will you later this week!

How do you like old towns like Goslar? Do you like this ancient architecture and the timber frame houses? I would love to know!

By the way – do you follow me on instagram already? If not make sure to do so. I am super new over there and I would love to conntect with you!

    This city looks so charming, straight out of a story book! I seriously need to make my way to Europe, specifically Germany and Austria; I’ve been seeing so many lovely photos of these little cities and I’m intrigued. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    I love the post and I feel the same way bout restaurants, as you already know:) But i like to be inspired by restaurant dishes, just to make something better at home. I love such old towns and I feel very lucky to live in a country with so many old cities. For example Torun (my city) is so full of medieval buildings, I still feel amazed how its possible that it’s still here after the war. The trip must have been amazing, how I wish to go away for few days, but I’m working almost every weekend now. Have a great week, hugs:)))

    It looks like such a nice place to visit, also I love a bit of history! My grandparents village was burned twice during the WWII, so most of the houses and buildings are new (and ugly compared to the old ones, if I may say so).
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I absolutely lovey how quaint and picturesque Goslar looks! Never heard of Goslar before, but I really want to make a little weekend trip there now! And yes, Soup & Soul Kitchen sounds absolutely divine! Love how there are more and more veggie and vegan options popping up in some of the most unexpected places! I even was able to get vegan Knödel when I was away for a ski trip last year in Austria!

    Die Altstadt sieht ja toll aus! Ich mag solche Gassen und Viertel ja immer sehr gern… da kann man wunderbar herum schlendern (und fotografieren).

    Ich mag solche alten Städte sogar sehr! Ich könnte darin stundenlang herumlaufen, nur zu groß dürfen sie nicht sein, Goslar passt aber noch gut in meine Range! Und ich freue mich für Dich, dass Du so zufrieden mit dem Essen in dem veganen Restaurant warst. Ich esse nämlich aus den selben Gründen wie Du mittlerweile nur noch selten auswärts (abgesehen von meinem täglichen Besuch in der Kantine) und freue mich dann umso mehr, wenn es dann gut schmeckt, wenn ich doch mal wieder auswärts essen gehe.
    Dein Mantel ist absolut toll!
    Liebe Grüße, Rena
