Green, beautiful, fragrant things from all over the world. The Old Botanical Garden in Göttingen is an absolute must. After all, the plant experts there are friends of our hotel.

Ein kleines Boot fährt bei Sonnenschein auf dem schönen blauen Kiessee

Göttinger Kiessee

A headline made this body of water famous: "Giant catfish chokes on a turtle". You can stroll around the sandy banks of this former quarry pond and, with any luck, see turtles hanging about on tree trunks.
Or spend some time on the water in one of the pedal boats, rowboats or canoes while enjoying the sun. 

Eine Frontaufnahme der Hardenberg Distillery

Hardenberg Distillery

The Hardenberg has stood for excellent ingredients and masterful distillation since 1700. The distillery not only cultivates their raw materials on the count's estates in Lower Saxony, but processes them directly in-house. Under the new roof of the Hardenberg Distillery, they prepare the finest of hand-made spirits. Honest, direct and strong in character – just like the people who make them. As in the past, everything happens on site, from raw ingredients to finished product.
