Lüneburg. The city of "salt and malt". Rightly... after all, 80 breweries were once brewed here.
The Kronenbrauerei is the oldest known brewery in Lüneburg. Since 1485 all master brewers have been handed down to this day. At the place of origin of the Kronen brewery you will find the brewery museum, which explains the entire process of brewing beer with original exhibits.
"De Sulte dat is Luneborch", stated the mayor of Lüneburg, Hinrik Lange, in 1461. Salt determined life in Lüneburg for over 1,000 years.
It was not until 1980 that the salt works, one of the oldest and largest industrial plants in Europe, was closed for economic reasons. Since then the German Salt Museum and the industrial monument Saline Lüneburg remind of its glorious past.
In addition to a permanent exhibition, special exhibitions regularly provide variety.
Admire Lüneburg from a bird's eye view!
Beside the great view over the city (and in good weather even to Hamburg 45km away) the Lüneburger Wasserturm offers you a permanent exhibition and an event area. The water tower has already become the setting for weddings, music events or conferences.
The centre of the Lüneburger Heide Nature Park is the 169m high Wilseder Berg. From here you have a wonderful view over the landscape.
Purple heather carpets stretch for miles to the horizon, interspersed with the juniper bushes typical of the landscape. And with a little luck you will see a shepherd with his herd of Heidschnucken.
An old rule of thumb says:
The heath blooms from 08.08. to 09.09. of a year!
The historic old town centre of Lauenburg is absolutely worth seeing. Lovingly restored half-timbered houses are lined up in the Elbstraße.
In the southernmost city of Schleswig Holstein many small alleys are waiting to be discovered by you.

The saltworks, which originally helped Lüneburg to its wealth, are located directly below the town. But wealth has its price. Today this salt dome lowers annually by up to 13cm, so that houses bulge and columns stand crooked. Beside a view into the lowering area, the way leads past the old city wall up to the old crane, the secret landmark of Lüneburg.https://www.lueneburger-heide.de/natur/etappe/8394/das-weisse-gold-der-suedheide-entdecken-tagestour-22-km.html
