The city was first mentioned in documents dating to the 8th century. In medieval times, Göttingen became a free imperial city, and later a strong fortress of the Holy Roman Empire. Today it is an industrial centre and is notably located on the German Timber-Frame Road (Deutsche Fachwerkstraße). The population of Göttingen rose from 38,000 in 1990 to 40,000 in 2003.
