White GoldFor over a thousand years Lüneburg was the centre of salt mining in Northern Europe. The trade in this precious commodity made the town wealthy and important. The evidence of its salt mining past can be seen everywhere and especially in the Senkungsgebiet where the subsidence caused by the mining has caused the buildings to move and lean. Even the church spire is at a jaunty angle. Stay in a Bed and Breakfast Lüneburg near the old saltworks, now the German Salt Museum, and learn all about the story of salt.
Open air museumWalking through the historic centre, Altstadt, of Lüneburg is almost like being in a museum with all its beautiful buildings. Visit the town hall, Rathaus, said to be the most attractive in Germany. With its ornate baroque facade and the 41 porcelain bells ringing regularly it is worth a visit. Tours are held daily. Ask your friendly hosts at your Bed and Breakfast Lüneburg for more tips on local attractions.
Salty soakFor the ultimate in relaxation head to the Salü Spa for a dip in its thermal saline pools known for their restorative powers. The natural saline spring sprays a fine salty mist into the air which is thought to be good for the body and mind. After that you can enjoy a refreshing glass of Lüneburger Pilsner the delicious local beer brewed in the area.
