The medieval wealth of the imperial town of Goslar is reflected in the number of impressive churches that required a high level of united effort to complete.

Four outstanding examples are reminders of the pride of the city. Enjoy the wonderful views from the north tower of the old town from the Protestant Market Church of St. Cosmas and Damian, Admire the nine medieval stained glass windows and the old library, or maybe listen to the impressive sounds of the church bell, the second largest bell in Lower Saxony. The Frankenberger church shares some of its wall with the old Goslar city wall. The Gottesbau, once part of a monastery and church of the miners is distinguished by the striking contrast between the sober Romanesque structure and the ornate, baroque features such as the altar. The Catholic Church of St. Jakobi, since 1807 are kept precious pieces of the dissolved Monastery Riechenberg. The architectural complex has been restored and rebuilt several times and is the oldest operating church in the city. The stunning, life-sized Pietà by Hans Witten attracts art connoisseurs to the shrine. Among the Romanesque monuments within the Harz is the former Neuwerk Monastery from the 12th and 13th century. Since the church was built, there have been no architectural changes, so it is not hard to imagine the true devotion of the nuns and feel the monastic peace.
