World Heritage Rammelsberg
The Rammelsberg is a mountain, 635m high, on the northern edge of the Harz, south of the town of Goslar in the north German state of Lower Saxony. The mountain is the location of an important mine, the only mine which had been working continuously for over 1,000 years.
The Imperial Palace, built between 1040 and 1050 during the reign of Heinrich III, is a unique secular architecture monument. For more than 200 years German and European history was made here. In the St. Ulrich Chapel at the south end a stone sarcophagus with the figure of Heinrich III on the cover houses the gold capsule containing the heart of the emperor, who died in 1056.
Hall of Homage
The Hall of Homage from 1505 is a unique jewel of late Gothic interior decoration; its walls, ceiling and even the window alcoves are completely covered with wood panel paintings. Each painting is an artwork of quality surrounded by richly carved wood decorations.
