Dear visitors,

we are proud to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage and work every day to preserve this heritage for generations to come. Our site requires constant maintenance, so you may see construction and restoration work during your visit. We ask for your understanding and look forward to your visit!

Retaining wall lower work yard

Dear visitors,

what you see is the retaining wall of the so-called lower work yard. The outer masonry made of natural stone is detaching from the concrete wall behind it in many places. Penetrating water has expanded during winter frost and split off the natural stones. The meter-thick concrete wall is damaged on the surface, but its stability remains intact.

What are we doing? We raised funds because the Rammelsberg World Heritage Site cannot pay for the renovation on its own. We coordinate with the monument protection authorities and planning offices to rebuild the more than 80-year-old wall as we found it. Civil engineers plan with new construction technology to prevent further damage.

You can't see that! That happens in the background in the offices and in many coordination meetings. And unfortunately that takes time!

We'll be there soon! In the spring of 2023, the first surface of the masonry will be renovated. If the planned construction techniques work, the entire wall will be renovated in sections over the next few years.

Further changes from the 17th of April

Due to the road construction work at the Breite Tor, there will be restrictions on city bus services as part of the 2nd construction phase from Monday, April 17, 2023 until mid-August 2023. Lines 801, 802, 803 and 806 are affected.

These lines run from the train station via the Alter Friedhof and Köppelsbleek stops in the direction of the Oker or Ohlhof and do not run via Jakobkirchhof - Bäckerstraße.

The following stops can therefore not be approached. Passengers are asked to use the stops at Goslar station.

  • Mauerstraße

  • AWO-Social Centre Direction Oker/Hospital/Bassgeige
  • Jakobikirchhof in Direction Oker/Hospital/Bassgeige
  • Pressehaus/Bäckerstraße
  • Breites Tor, Bus station A/Direction train station

Please use the train station, train station-north side or Köppelsbleek stops as alternative stops.
