SHOPPING

In Lüneburg’s  center you can shop for practically anything your heart desires. Small, fine, family-owned shops, bistros and cafés, delicatessens and boutiques are typical for Lüneburg. Opening hours in Germany may be a bit different from what you are used to: shops are closed on Sundays, so it would be better to take a town tour or a trip somewhere in the region on a Sunday and plan your shopping trip for another day. The popular 'Shopping Sunday' is held four times a year, on the dates listed here.

FARMERS´ MARKET IN LÜNEBURG

One of the true highlights during a stay in Lüneburg is the weekly held farmers` market. Every Wednesday and Saturday you can meet our local traders in front of the marvellous townhall facade. Taste seasonal, fresh, regional and mostly organic products, have a chit-chat with farmers and locals and learn about the mentality of our native citizens. Meet the early birds just after opening,  the families collecting ingredients for lunch or dinner and watch among them those who stroll along watching the morning leasurly pass by. Don´t miss a freshly brewed Espresso or a tasty Bratwurst at one of the many stands on market square and do as the locals do, relax.

Wednesday & Saturday:

7 am to 1 pm
