Enchanting Landscape

From coastlands to highlands, Lower Saxony has it all. The Göttingen area is heavily influenced by the neighboring Harz Mountains, thus deriving its character from large forests and picturesque heath and grassland areas. Seven hundred and fifty nature reserves, over 1,400 protected areas of outstanding natural beauty, and 13 large natural parks safeguard the natural environment in Lower Saxony.

The Harz Mountains and the Weser Uplands are some of best-loved and most beautiful spots around Göttingen. There is still genuine “wilderness” here and all-but-untouched habitats for flora and fauna.
