This bronze plate in the street pavement exactly at the corner of Kornmarkt/Markt shows the location from which all four inner city churches can be seen. These are St. Johannis in the west, St. Jacobi in the north, St. Albani in the east and St. Michael in the south. In the row of buildings on the south side of the market square stood the oldest guild house in Göttingen from 1251, the "Schuhhof". Below it is a Gothic vaulted cellar, which today houses a restaurant.

Grabkapelle auf dem Württemberg in Stuttgart towers majestically above the vineyards and offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the city and the surrounding area. King Wilhelm I built this chapel as a memorial to his beloved Queen Catherine in the style of a Russian Orthodox church. The interior is divided into three parts and the chancel is separated by a picture wall. The idyllic location amidst the vineyards in Stuttgart-Rotenberg is a popular destination for an excursion into Stuttgart's nature. Combine your visit with a walk through the vines and experience the city from a different perspective. A visit at sunrise or sunset is especially recommended, when the atmosphere in the chapel and the surrounding area is particularly magical.
The power of water
Originally, Mercury was to become the fountain's leading figure. However, thanks to the cholera epidemic, Hygieia, the Greek goddess of health, purity and hygiene, finally made the running. Depicted is the purifying power of water and the victory over the cholera epidemic by a defeated dragon at the feet of the goddess.

Nix champagne, koane Schicki-Mickis...
...and no kissy kissy - that's how we are! That's what it says on the menu and that's how it is - simply rustic. In this winding inn, you enter Bavaria right at the door. And just before the border to Bavaria. This calls for an Augustiner on tap - or if that's not enough, you can get a 20-liter keg to drink alone (or with friends) and plenty of Bavarian cosiness. What about food? That's also available. Really tasty and hearty... and in huge portions. And if you prefer to enjoy your beer, roast ox or spaetzle without the kids - no problem, they have their own regulars' table anyway.
Colorful landmark at night
With its bright colors, the imposing tower, affectionately known as the "Lulatsch", is a real eye-catcher and a popular photo spot.

Although it is a thermal power station, at night it is transformed into a fascinating work of art that captivates every visitor. It is therefore the perfect place for an evening stroll or a romantic date, and of course a sought-after photo spot for memories.

Please do not yell!
Roar? Or would you rather keep your mouth shut? If you look closely, you'll notice that the two lions in front of the Feldherrnhalle differ in one thing. Coincidence? Absolutely not. One is looking toward the church - and that's where you should be quiet. The other, on the other hand, is facing the government. You should give them your opinion from time to time. *roar

Our Galaxy on foot
Two billion kilometers in space correspond to one kilometer on the planetary path - this corresponds to a replica of the sun and the nine planets orbiting it on a scale of 1:2 billion. Strictly speaking, there are only eight, because Pluto has now been classified as a dwarf planet. The path begins in front of Gebhard's Hotel in Goetheallee and ends at the Bismarck Tower high up in the Hainberg. Bronze stelae, designed by the Göttingen artists Karin and Reinhold Wittig, represent the sun and the planets, also on the same scale. But that's not all: on each stele, text information provides interesting facts about the respective celestial body.
As if from the pages of a fairytale novel

From the ancient stone walls you also have a breathtaking view of the surrounding green hills, vineyards, olive groves and the many farms. How small is this village? Very small. The village of Montefioralle may only have around 100 inhabitants, but it has just been included in the list of Italy's most beautiful villages - very quiet and peaceful and away from mass tourism.
City tour - East Modernism in Chemnitz
With 80 percent of the city centre destroyed by the war, not much was left of its once magnificent architecture, which was characterized above all by prestigious buildings and numerous alleyways. The prompt reconstruction and restoration of some buildings - such as the Siegert House on Marktplatz or the Opera House on Theaterplatz - meant that today countless architectural styles can be found along the Street of Nations. Including, of course, outstanding buildings of Eastern Modernism, i.e. from the very period in which the center was to become a model for other cities: with space, structure, corners and edges. Let yourself be fascinated and inspired by straight lines, art on buildings and floating roofs on a tour.
