Luneburg Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
For German people the name Lüneburg is closely associated with the term Heide (heather). This association is correct, it really exists here, the "Lüneburger Heide". In spite of its name, the exceptional heather landscape is only approximately half an hour drive away from the city. However, beautiful and interesting things can also be found in the city Lüneburg itself. The city's fame and former wealth is due to the "white gold" of the Middle Ages - salt. Many parts of the picturesque historic Old Town (Altstadt) show signs of that former time, and are well worth seeing.
