Bike Touring Highlight
The first documented in 953 as Gutingi village on the River Leine was created in the environment of today's St. Albani Church. The later founded market town of Gotingen gained city rights around 1230, while the original village of Gutingi remained for a long time outside and a shadowy existence. Göttingen became a city in 1964 and today is one of the nine regional centers of Lower Saxony. The county seat and largest city of the district of Göttingen was integrated in 1964 as until then independent city by the adopted by the Lower Saxony Parliament Göttingen law in the same district, but is still equal to the independent cities (Wikipedia).
