Mensa am Turm

Every day you can choose from vegan or vegetarian salads or different vegan and vegetarian menus with various side dishes and also desserts in our canteen at the tower.

Mensa am Turm with a new vegan and vegetarian concept

"pure l vegan l vegetarian" will be the motto in the now meat-free canteen "Mensa am Turm" from October 18, 2021.

After 18 months of pandemic-related closure, the canteen has now reopened. There are vegan and vegetarian dishes, side dishes, as well as salads and desserts.

Access is based on the 2G rule, the vaccination status or recovery status is checked at the entrance - so there is no mask requirement and no obligation to keep your distance.

The seats in the café on the tower are also available to canteen guests. The canteen has round abaout 400 seats, of which around 60 are outside at fixed tables and benches.

Important to know: Only cashless payments are possible. Chargers can be found in the entrance area and in the dining room behind the cash registers.


Architecturally, something special

The canteen is located in the former wash hall of the University of Göttingen. The "tower room" makes the canteen at the tower with its striking architecture something very special. Steam escaped from the tower when it was still functioning as the exhaust air tower of the university laundry.
The current tower room was only made useable in 1994, after the missing floor had been installed. Under the tower are still underground catacombs, through which in former times oxygen flowed, to supply these to the burner in the foot of the tower.
The tower also forms a beautiful connection to inner-city fauna: kestrels have been nesting on the tower for 23 years.
