    I added some photos to this highlight. There are two natural viewpoints in Lüneburg. The Kalkberg, where the castle used to be. The best view is in winter, when the trees clear the view. Furthermore, the one on the Kreideberg: Here you have a wonderful view over the small lake to the city.
    Lüneburg has different quarters with their own character. The Bardowick Wall, the spa gardens and many small parks are also worthwhile.

    Lüneburg lies on the lower reaches of the Ilmenau, about 30 km before its confluence with the Elbe. To the south extends the Lüneburg Heath, an area of ​​about 7400 km², which was created by the impact of large amounts of wood, forest fires and grazing. The frequently cited statement that heathland was created by logging for the operation of the Saline Lüneburg, is historically not secured. More likely is the beginning of human influence in the Bronze Age. The Lüneburg old town is also located above a salt dome, which established the wealth of the city and whose cap made of gypsum, the lime mountain, at the same time an excellent site for the refuge, which gave Lüneburg its name.

    The old Hanseatic and salt city of Lüneburg as a starting point is also worthwhile as a final destination. The proximity to Hamburg and the Leuphania University founded in 2007 ensure structural changes and catering. The tourist boom is doing its part. New small hotels have emerged that treat old buildings with loving care. New quarters are emerging or have to be redefined.

    The people of Lüneburg speak of the old town when they mean the old craft district. The core of Lüneburg can be divided into four areas. Three are determined by the remaining churches.

    The old craft district with the St. Michaeliskirche.
    The water district with St. Nicolai and the stint.
    The area on the sand with St. Johannes, the water tower, the Ratsmühle and Museum Lüneburg.
    The center of the town hall and the streets to the sand.

    These towers and buildings can help with orientation.

    Decisive for the development of Lüneburg to wealth and the "salt barrel of the Hanseatic League" was the storming of the castle on the Kalkberg in February 1371 and half a year later the battle in Lüneburg, on the St. Ursula night. The Lüneburgers remained victorious. These are the turning points for further fundamental development.

    As a short-term destination, I also recommend: the Kalkberg (only for hiking), the Kreidebergsee, the Kurpark and the Lüne Monastery.

    The bike paths especially in the city center are not always clear. Partly ways for bicycles are blocked. In addition, some of the cobbled paths.
