Nordturm der Marktkirche, Goslar

4.2
#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Goslar
An almost castle-like church built in the 11th century, Nordturm der Marktkirche is known for its stained glass windows from 1250, nine of which depict scenes from the lives of the two church saints, Cosmas and Damian. Admire the ornate design of the 16th-century baptismal font--but don't forget to look up to see its matching lid suspended from ceiling. Hike up the 230 steps of the church's north tower, and you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the town and surrounding area. A visit to Nordturm der Marktkirche represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Goslar online road trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • The Market Church is one of the countless churches in Wernigerode, but apart from its imposing interior, where old and newly wonderful connect, it has one of its two towers that brought us closer to heaven. After leaving 232 steps, which were quite good to go, among us, we were able to enjoy the view from high altitude. The view over the city shows an intact medieval town. The building sins of modern times can be overlooked. And the view into the resin is very beautiful. We were lucky enough to be there around 17.30, on a clear day with mild sunshine. Even with over 70, you can forget the effort of ascension. But a few breaks along the way are recommended.

  • This church has its oldest parts from the 1200 century and it is the city church in Goslar. There are interiors from the 1500 century and up to an artistically designed glass window that is from our millennium. The three big bells are named after ladies: Johanna, Christina and Paulina.
