    As one of the most outstanding monuments of Northern Germany, the historic town hall of Lüneburg with its famous court arbor, the former council chamber, which was designed by an unknown master, can be viewed. It was started around 1230 and has been further developed over the centuries and is considered the largest medieval town hall in northern Germany. The bronze fountain in front of the town hall is adorned with a bronze statue of the moon goddess with bow and arrow; the original of 1532 was stolen in 1970 and melted down; today's bust is a replica of 1972.The front view shows the baroque façade (1706-1720), from the old façade the lower court (1389) is left. It is located behind the iron fence on the right side. To capture the entire complex, it's worth it to go 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 scaffolded. The town hall should be completely renovated and modernized until about 2024-2025.On the left side is the tourist information. In front of it is a lovingly designed bronze model of the old city center that also wants to be felt.Wed + Sa takes place the weekly market in front of the town hall (about 7:00 - 13:00 clock).Link to a wonderful flyer:

    A very beautiful medieval building, ideal as a start or end point for tours. On a rainy day, one can also look at the impressive inner life during a guided tour from the inside.Information on opening times and guided tours:

    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.
