Planetenweg Göttingen

Göttingen is a small town in the middle of Germany that is known for its university and the renowned scientists that came out of it. The town also has a long history with astronomy, which has been one of its strong points dating back to the 17th century, when observations were made from a dome on the city wall. 

Göttingen is now home to a large research institute that focuses on studying the solar system, the Max Planck Institute. As a whimsical way to connect this research with the town, the local train station the Göttingen city center are linked by a planetary pathway containing a complete scale model of the solar system.
