The ‘Holtenser Berg’ came into being as a residential area in the 1960s. Following World War II, there had been a sharp rise in the number of people resident in Göttingen. Additional housing was needed. The properties were built on a ridge that rises steeply out of the Leine valley. Many of the flats have a wonderful view. The town centre can be reached comfortably on bus routes 11 and 12.
Children and young people
The Evangelical Kindergarten in Brüsselstraße and the Catholic Kindergarten in Wienstraße are located within the neighbourhood, as is the ‘Hagenbergschule Göttingen’. When school is out there are diverse play and free-time options.
Our largest accommodation complex for young and old.
Over recent years, the Städtische Wohnungsbau has renovated various playgrounds on the ‘Holtenser Berg’, work which has received an enthusiastic response. The Holtenser Berg youth club has existed since 1983, offering a venue where youngsters between 12 and 21 can get together. At the Abraxas children’s centre, there are games and fun for children from 6 to 12.
The Evangelical Lutheran ‘Bethlehemgemeinde’ sees itself as the parish for the locality. Over the years, this church parish has set up a social counselling centre and now runs a second-hand shop selling, amongst other things, toys for babies and children. A meeting place for young and old.
