Lüneburg's special atmosphere attracts people of all ages. Some people say that the city is refreshing not only because of its clear air, but also because of the cheerful mood of the residents.

Lüneburg is the perfect home for people who need an environment allowing for full concentration at work but who don't want to miss out on a relaxing atmosphere in their free time.  

A close-knit university campus and a wide array of entertainment and cultural events ranging from art exhibitions and international rock festivals to poetry readings provide a stimulating atmosphere.


Lüneburg and its surroundings: Hamburg, Heide, the North Sea and the Baltic.
Lüneburg lies in northern Germany about 50 km southeast from Hamburg in the State of Lower Saxony.  The Lüneburger Heide, a favorite vacation region, lies close by, as do the North Sea and the Baltic.  Hannover, the capitol of Lower Saxony, is an hour away and it takes just 2-3 hours to reach Berlin.


The city's surroundings are charming: If you are looking for relaxation, you can take the train to the Baltic Sea or the Lüneburger Heide.  And if you want to spend an evening or weekend enjoying big city excitement, then you have a wide selection: Hamburg, the metropolis on the Elbe, can be reached in just half an hour, Hannover is an hour away, and Berlin is less than three hours by train.
