    One of the last two defensive towers in Goslar, and a well-attended excursion destination or restaurant.

    The Maltermeisterturm is about two kilometers south of the old town of Goslar am Rammelsberg - about halfway up the same. It was probably built in the 13th or 14th century. However, its first written mention was only in 1548. Once the Maltermeisterturm served as a watchtower for the mine in Rammelsberg. A bell in the tower also rang at the beginning of each shift.
    From around the middle of the 18th century, the master painter lived in the tower, which gave the building its present name. At that time, the master painter was responsible for the management of the mines needed in the mine. The Malter is an old room measure and corresponds to about 2 m³.
    Today, the Maltermeisterturm is part of a restaurant with a large terrace and a wonderful view of the city of Goslar. Inside the excursion restaurant there is a curious feature - the "smoking-point". This allows the guests to smoke in the restaurant without violating the existing laws - the person must insert his head and hands through a wall opening.
    The Maltermeisterturm is also a good starting point for hikes in the Rammelsberg area.

    At the tower there is also a restaurant with a large outdoor area and the best view of Goslar. This is also where the steep ascent to the Ramseck stamping point begins

    The Maltermeisterturm is the oldest surviving daytime facility on the Rammelsberg and - probably - also in Germany. It was built around 1500 on a dump on the slope of the Rammelsberg.
    The Maltermeister Tower was first mentioned in a document in 1548.
    Initially the tower was used to monitor the pits, from 1578 to 1804 it was used as a bell tower. The bell rang before the start of the shift in the mine, but was also intended to warn of attackers.
    It was later kept in the Goslar City Museum, but was probably shown in the exhibition in Haus M am Rammelsberg after 1990.
    Since the middle of the 18th century, the tower served as the apartment of the so-called painter master, who also gave it its name.
    The master painter managed the wood required for the mining operation, which was measured in malters.
    A “painter” corresponds to about two cubic meters. Around 6000 Malter were used annually for ore extraction in the Rammelsberg, i.e. more than one cubic meter of wood was needed for one ton of ore. In the course of a far-reaching expansion and renovation, today's mountain restaurant was opened in 2004. After a change of operator at the end of 2018 and further interior fittings, today's Maltermeister Gastro GmbH, represented by Florian Peters and Heiko Rataj, offers the restaurant "Maltermeister Turm", which is 419m above sea level. NN located panoramic terrace and the restaurant "Anno 1548", which was built in 2012 and adjoins the tower, including tower garden, enough space for large celebrations and spontaneous visitors.

    Here the Maltermeister pan is worthwhile (if you are really hungry) :)

    Located on the way to Ramseck, gastronomy is currently closed as everywhere,
    I can imagine sitting on the terrace when the weather is nice.

    The former residence of the master painter (who was responsible for the wood required in the mine). The tower is the oldest surviving building in the old mine.
    Today the tower contains a restaurant with a great view over Goslar
