When West Winds Waft over me during my long Walks, become inspired Puzzle Maker. Where is this place?

I don’t have a profile yet, so it won’t help you much.

For those mathematically minded, they may not even need further clues, to find this beautiful place.

Some of the famous mathematicians worked here and their pioneering work forms the basis for new branches.

I made some simple words which includes all the letters found this place’s name.

Ice, Cite, Pot, Not, Inn, Nor

Where is this place?

Name at least 3 famous people from here that had profound influence over several branches of mathematics.

  • $\begingroup$ @Uvc Done. (For the record, "place that produced many world-famous mathematicians" cuts it down to very few possibilities. My first thought was Gottinger, which didn't work, but a lot of the Gottingen guys relocated to [the correct answer].) $\endgroup$ Jun 6, 2019 at 15:41
