Lüneburg is a small Hanseatic city in Lower Saxony. The city was a salt trader and important economic center because of its geographic location near Lubeck. As you know, salt used to be very important and expensive in former times as it was used in many processes, in particular, allowed long-term storage of food. Therefore, cities with salt had a good income.

Now salt is not mined and former merchants are working in the services sector, for example the concentration of restaurants and cafes in Lüneburg is the largest in Germany.

For a long time the city was the capital of the possessions of the Dukes of Braunschweig-Lüneburg. But with the transfer of the capital to Hannover, the significance of the city fell. By the way, the Dukes had Ukrainian flag :)

Upon arrival we went to the water tower. From the station, it can be reached along the beautiful streets with water channels. The round neo-Gothic tower was built in 1907.

Another interesting place that we visited is Kalkberg. It is a mountain near the historical center of the city. Until 1371 a castle stood at the top of the mountain, at an altitude of 80 meters. Later it was destroyed and the mountain itself turned into a quarry where gypsum and building materials were mined. Now the height of the mountain is 56 meters and in its center is a huge crater.

Interesting facts: Johann Sebastian Bach studied for 2 years in the church of St. Nicholas. Also, the famous Nazi Heinrich Himmler committed suicide here.
