Lüneburg’s old town is also often referred to as an area monument. This is mainly due to the romantic old town alleys and the numerous historic buildings that can be seen here. The former salt and Hanseatic city came to great wealth as a trading centre for salt in the past, which can be seen in the many magnificent burgher and patrician houses. Especially at the main square on the Sande and at the market, there are many picturesque alleys with beautiful houses that you can admire on a tour of the city. Therefore, tranquil Lüneburg with its historic town centre invites you to stroll and linger and is regularly visited by many tourists.
