Lüneburg was once one of the wealthiest towns in Germany with prosperity generated by the salt mines. The old cranes and old mills provide a reminder of the town's history and a visit to soothing waters of the Salü Salztherme

Lüneburg Heath gets its unusual terrain from its salt industry history and the moors are covered by heather. This is particularly spectacular at the end of August when the purple heather is blooming.

If you are keen to discover more of Germany, why not take advantage of our Heidelberg city breaks or hotels in Ruhpolding.


this medieval town hall boasts a spectacular baroque facade, and is decroated with three tiers of statues. Take a guided tour and discover the even more lavishly decorated interiors.

Am Sande

The wobbly, cobbled street and Am Sande square is a must see for lovers of architecture. The square is full of red brick buildings, and typically Hanseatic-style gables, and the Trade and Industry Chamber in the far western corner really stands out.

German Salt Museum

Find out all about the precious food preservative which made Lüneburg one of the wealthiest towns in Germany and just an important player in the Hanseatic League.

St Johanniskirche

At the eastern edge of the Am Sande square is the 14th-century St Johanniskirche church, whose 108m-high spire leans 2.2m off centre. The inside of the church is just as impressive with a stunning organ dating back to 1551, carvings and stained glass windows.
