Notes NOTES: An Imperial Free City, Goslar became a member of the Hanseatic League in the 13th century and enjoyed immense prosperity until the mid-16th century. The Kaiserworth (clothiers' house) is one of the few guild houses to have survived in reasonable condition and dates from 1494. The Marktbrunnen (market fountain), dating from c.1230, has two Romanesque bronze basins crowned by the medieval Imperial eagle of Goslar which was added in the 18th century.
