Lüneburg City Hall

Lüneburg City Hall


Important architectural monument and landmark of Lüneburg

As the city’s landmark, Lüneburg’s town hall combines a wide variety of epochs and architectural styles in its 700-year architectural history: While the court arbour, prince’s hall, old archive, chancellery and mayor’s chamber date from the Gothic and Renaissance periods, the homage hall and market façade belong to the Baroque period. A highlight of the largest medieval town hall in northern Germany is certainly the tower clock with its chimes made of Meissen porcelain. Lüneburg’s town hall was built from 1230 onwards and was regularly rebuilt and extended in the following centuries. Still used as an administrative centre today, the town hall has a total of 259 rooms. On one of the regular guided tours you can visit the most beautiful rooms of this outstanding northern German architectural monument.
