Göttingen - perfect for living!

Kappa: only 10 minutes by car / 25 minutes by bike from Göttingen city centre

Just the right size, with flair and wonderful surroundings!

Göttingen offers you the flair and openness of a university town with a rich cultural life, pub culture, shopping, an extraordinary educational landscape, medical care of the highest caliber, and everything necessary for a high quality of life. And you can be “outside” in breathtaking green landscapes in no time. Anyone who can't stand provincial narrow-mindedness, but doesn’t want to put up with the drawbacks of big city life either, will feel right at home in the “little big town” of Göttingen. Settling in here is easy.

Right in the middle!

This is the scenic middle point of Germany, and you can get anywhere quickly by ICE via the A7 and A38 — or nice and slow along the Jakobsweg. The Hanover airport is one hour away by direct train.

Theater

Alongside the German Theater, there is the Young Theater (where the beloved “Rudelsingen” takes place) and the ThOP, the Theater in the Operating Room, where student stagings are presented in an old anatomy lecture hall.

In the mood for festivals?

Jazz Festival, Handel Festival, Literature in Autumn, Puppet Theater Days, Science Night, Night of Culture, Culture Summer, NDR Soundcheck, Open Flair and the Open Air KWP Festival in the middle of the forest — all year long, there is a plethora of cultural highlights in and around Göttingen. 

Celebrating? Bars?

In Göttingen, there is a distinct pub culture in all forms, whether whisky, craft beers, sports bars, basement club or EXIL to historic “dives” like the Trou. Anyone still standing probably meets up early in the morning at the Déjà. Several colleagues are happy to offer pub tours for interested parties. ;)

Science

In Göttingen, the most unimaginable variety of institutes surrounds the University, from the Max Planck Institute for Solar Energy, or the Primate Center, to the German Aerospace Center. Anyone wishing to broaden their horizons should take note: for example, on the Night of Science, they all open their doors to anyone.

Science you can touch: the Göttingen Kinder-Uni

With the Göttingen Kinder-Uni, the University is trying to excite children about science using child-appropriate offerings early on — from biomolecular chemistry to music in Tibetan Buddhism. Moreover, many institutes have established their own school labs, providing fantastic opportunities for schools (DLR School Lab, XLab, etc).

Doctors

Every now and then we have to wait as well, but medical care in Göttingen is absolutely top notch in all fields, thanks to the University Clinic and the high number of medical specialists all around.
