Date of visit: August 12, 2010, around 6:00 p.m.

(continued from previous episode)

I had a little time before dinner, so I took a walk around the central square. But it was already past 5 p.m., so the shops were not doing much, and of course all the tourist facilities were closed.

Now, here’s another review by Wikipedia.

  • ランメルスベルク鉱山はニーダーザクセン州南部のハルツ山地の海抜635mの鉱山で、1000年以上前から採掘が行われていた。
  • ゴスラーはハルツ地方の中心的な都市で、ランメルスベルク鉱山の麓にあり、鉱山の町として栄えた。
  • ゴスラーの町には歴代の皇帝・王の居留地が置かれ、美しい街並みが形成された。
  • ヨーロッパ屈指の歴史を持つランメルスベルク鉱山とゴスラーの旧市街は、1992年、ユネスコ世界遺産に登録された。

It’s a town with a lot of history in silver mine. And it lasted for more than 1,000 years. So it was mined until the end of the last century. Also, I saw on another site that this town was the only one in the Harz region that belonged to the West German side, and that’s why they put so much effort into preserving it.

I see, that’s why there is still a very well managed and beautiful cityscape.

The big city in this area is Hannover, but maybe it’s because of the influence of Japanese tourist guide books, but it seems that there are not so many tours in this area of North Germany. And there are no Chinese people here, so there are few oriental people.

The cobblestone is very beautiful. I’ve seen so many cobblestone streets that I’m tired of them, but surprisingly, there are not so many places where they are properly maintained. I was impressed that this place is really well managed.

We ended up walking around the central square a bit, probably because we didn’t have much time. Still, it was fun!

Dinner at the hotel.

I went to bed shortly after dinner in the offlo. I think I was tired from running in the rain all day.

The next day. It was a fine day, a change from yesterday.

We also visited a church we couldn’t get into yesterday.
