The Stintmarkt is located in the historic water district of Lüneburg. As the name suggests, the fish species "smelt" used to be traded here, a small, herring-like fish that was very popular in the Middle Ages.
Similar to salmon, smelts swim into the rivers in late February to spawn in the sandy bottom. They were caught and traded at the smelt market.
Today, Lüneburg's most famous bar and restaurant mile is located on the Stintmarkt. The medieval houses, all of which are very well preserved, offer a fantastic and much-used photo backdrop.
