Weißenborn is a village in the municipality Gleichen , east of the city of Göttingen, Germany and between Bischhausen and Glasenhausen, near the border of Thuringia. The population is about 260 people. The Garte creek originates in the village. In addition to High German, the Elbe Eastphalian dialect of West Low German is spoken in the town. The mayor is Friedrich Ehbrecht. There is one church, the Lutheran Nicolaikirche.
In 1921, the SV Fürth Weißenborn was founded. After a wartime interruption, it was re-juvenated, only to undergo some ups and downs, including a merger in 1968 to form SV Bischhausen/Weißenborn. Soccer, though the original sport of the club, has declined in interest. Hiking and gymnastics are actively pursued these days. The club has a club-house in Weißenborn.
