    One of the most outstanding architectural monuments in northern Germany is the historic Lüneburg town hall with its famous court arbor, the former council chamber, which was designed by an unknown master. It was started around 1230, expanded over the centuries and is considered the largest medieval town hall in northern Germany. A bronze statue of the goddess of the moon adorns the lunar fountain in front of the town hall with a bow and arrow; the original from 1532 was stolen and melted down in 1970; today's bust is a replica from 1972.

    The front view shows the baroque facade (1706-1720), the lower court (1389) remains of the old facade. It is behind the iron fence on the right. In order to grasp the entire complex, it is worth walking around the town hall (driving is also possible). For a long time the town hall was hidden behind scaffolding, at the moment "only" the court arbor is equipped. The town hall should be completely renovated and modernized by 2024-2025.

    The tourist information is on the left. In front of it stands a lovingly designed bronze model of the old city center that also wants to be felt.

    Wed + Sat the weekly market takes place in front of the town hall (approx. 7:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.).

    A very beautiful medieval building, ideal as a start or end point for tours. On a rainy day, you can also take a tour of the impressive interior from the inside.

    The laying of the foundation stone of the town hall was in 1230. The Gothic façade was badly damaged by a storm, so that the front facade (1720), visible today, was remodeled in the style of the baroque style.
