Lüneburg - The Shopping Paradies
The combination of shopping in small boutiques and the old town’s historical atmosphere makes any shopping expedition in Lüneburg something special. The pedestrianised town centre abounds with small shops and boutiques in the historical gabled houses. This is what makes Lüneburg different from the modern, sterile shopping centres. You can stroll and browse at your own pace, and you will surely find a unique piece to take with you, be it chic fashion or a fitting accessory for your home. Since many of the shops are family-owned, there is an extraordinary variety. The large, well-known department stores and fashion chains round off the shopping experience. The historic old town’s cosy cafés, bistros and restaurants are ideal for a break from shopping.
Lüneburg Souvenir Shop
Holiday memories are especially beautiful when you take a piece of the holiday back home with you. The Tourist Information Office in the old town hall on the market square is bound to have the right souvenir for you. Should it be the classic Lüneburg salt bag? Or should it rather be quality spirits such as Heidegeist or Sülfmeisterlikör? Regional jewellery is also a great idea for lasting memories of your stay in Lüneburg. Come by and browse through our selection. Our friendly staff will surely help you make the right choice. And if you would like to learn more about the town, you could also acquire a travel guide here.

A tip for gourmets: Spices, herbs and teas, or even a hearty, heather salami are ideal to take home with you.
