Make sure you climb the tower while you are there! Great views of the town and the surrounding area. I've been there three times during three different seasons.

This beautiful church, mentioned in the writings for the first time in 1151, was built as a reduced replica of the imperial church, which no longer exists. This church is one of the most dominant in the city of Goslar and can be enjoyed from beautiful observations of the Old City. Inside the beautiful church you should see the nine glass windows from the 13th century, the 15th century fresco, the old library and the 17th-century baroque altar. Go up to the north tower of the church, which is about 60 meters high, and take some beautiful pictures of the city. Church opening hours: April to October from 10 am to 5 pm, from November to March from 10 am to 4 pm. How long should I visit? Half an hour.

The Marktkirche St. Cosmas and Damian is a Protestant-Lutheran church situated in the center of the Goslar old town. It is the Ratskirche (i.e., church of the town council) and main parish church of the city. The Marktkirche, first mentioned in documents in 1151, is named after the saints Cosmas and Damian. The Marktkirche is beautiful. The interior is simple but impressive. Inside you can see a Renaissance pulpit with a representation of Bible history, from Fall of Man in Paradise to Ascension of Christ (1581, Hans Seek); an organ (1970, Karl Schuke); a font (1573, Margnus Karsten); Fischbeck's epitaph (1708, Biggen; Fischbeck was a doctor, a councillor from 1687, and a city treasurer from 1700); and a "cycle" of windows depicting scenes from the lives of the saints Cosmas and Damian (1250). I would also recommend climbing the bell tower. It costs something about 2 or 3 euros per person. This climbing, the tower and the view from the top really impressed me and whole my family, including our 2-year-old daughter! While climbing, you can also take a look at the clock movement and belfry. Definitely must-see in Goslar!
