Gables aglow in the Hanseatic city

Next to the magnificent Baroque facade of the town hall, stalls with decorations based on Grimms' fairy tales transform Lüneberg's pedestrianised zone into a fairy tale kingdom. Another highlight of the Advent period is the historic Christmarkt around the St. Michaeliskirche, which will transport you back to the Renaissance period. The inner courtyard of Café NEWS on Schröderstraße plays host to Germany's smallest and most romantic Christmas market.
