Trip Planner Europe  /  Germany  /  Lower Saxony  /  Luneburg
Lüneburg, also called Lunenburg in English, is a town in the German state of Lower Saxony. It is located about 45km southeast of another Hanseatic city, Hamburg. It is part of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. The capital of the district of Lüneburg, its population is around 72,000 people. Lüneburg's urban area, which includes the surrounding communities like Adendorf, Bardowick, Bleckede, Amelinghausen and Reppenstedt, has a population of around 103,000. Lüneburg has been allowed to use the title "Hansestadt" in its name since 2007, in recognition of its membership in the former Hanseatic League; it is also a university town with more than 7000 students. Lüneburg is also called the "Salt Town", a reminder of the days when it was the centre of a major salt industry. As of December 2007, the town was the 120th largest in the Federal Republic of Germany.GeographyLocationLüneburg lies on the river Ilmenau, about 30km from its confluence with the Elbe. The river flows through the town and is featured in its song; it was formerly traversed by cogs taking salt from the town to the other, larger, ports of the Hanseatic League nearby.
