The Vienenburg–Goslar railway is a main line between Vienenburg and Goslar on the northern edge of the Harz mountains in Germany. It was opened in 1866.

Route[edit]

The 12.8 kilometre long route is single-tracked between Vienenburg and Oker. For much of its way the line follows the river Oker. The section from Oker to Goslar has been doubled.

Operations[edit]

The line is worked by regional trains on the Goslar–Vienenburg–Brunswick route. On the Goslar–Oker section there trains also run from Hanover and Kreiensen to Bad Harzburg.
