Cities to see
The heath blossom town invites you to visit the year-round blooming heath garden and the One World Church (Expo 2000 project).
The vacation community of Bispingen is in the centre of the Lueneburg Heath nature park. Here you can ideally combine an adventure vacation with a heath vacation. There is hardly any other region in the Lueneburg Heath where you will find so many attractions close together.
The old salt and Hanseatic city of Lüneburg, which gave its name to an entire landscape, was one of the richest cities in northern Germany. In the old town you can still find the most important gable forms of all style epochs right next to each other. The Lüneburg town hall on the market square is unique in Germany in its size and beauty. The “Alte Kran (old crane)”, Lüneburg’s landmark, is as much a part of the townscape as the towers of the three large churches: Nikolaikirche, Johanniskirche and Michaeliskirche.
Discover the romantic town on the southern edge of the Lüneburg Heath with its picturesque half-timbered buildings from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, the ducal palace, the town church and the historic town hall on a tour through the pedestrian zone of the old town. The museum of ethnology, the Bomann Museum, provides an overview of the state and city history.
