Lüneburg Chamber of Commerce


Renaissance building with an eventful history

Right in the centre of the main square “Am Sande”, surrounded by beautiful gabled houses and in the vicinity of St. John’s Church, lies one of the most impressive buildings in the city, the historic brick building of the Lüneburg Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). The Renaissance building from 1548 with its decorative double gable has been used for many purposes in its 400-year history. For over 350 years it served as Harmen Kloppenborch’s brewery, then later as an inn, retail shop as well as a state bank. After another brewery and an inn as well as a colonial and grease shop were located here at the beginning of the 20th century, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce moved in after the Second World War.
