Lüneburg Travel Guide: 47 reviews and 207 photos

In Lueneburg sits the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. This old, hanseatic, amazing old brick built town lies at the north east corner of the Lueneburger Heath on the edge of the Elbe lowlands. Its many old brick built buildings are of the Late Gothic and Renaissance periods. The center's most charming pedestrian zone reminds of Wiesbaden's beautiful Old Town's pedestrian zone. Yet no Starbucks' on Lueneburg's pedestrian zone. Lueneburg's fame and former wealth is due to the white gold of the Middle Ages: salt. Many parts of the picturesque historic Old Town are signs of that Middle Ages time and are very worth visiting.

Lueneburg is an university city, offering a young life with an historical surrounding. The new University of Lueneburg has 11,000 students. The University offers modern undergraduate and graduate programs with internationally recognized Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 27 programs. The university moved to a new campus in 1997, when a former Army complex was turned into a university. It was a unique conversion project in Germany.

Old Town

I've got a long list of real good reasons
For all the things I've done
I've got a picture in the back of my mind
Of what I've lost and what I've won
I've survived every situation
Knowing when to freeze and when to run
And regret is just a memory written on my brow
And there's nothing I can do about it now.

I've got a wild and a restless spirit
I held my price through every deal
I've seen the fire of a woman's scorned
Turn her heart of gold to steal
I've got the song of the voice inside me
Set to the rhythm of the wheel
And I've been dreaming like a child
Since the cradle broke the bow
And there's nothing I can do about it now.

Running through the changes
Going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate

Staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I've wasted
But that's a waste of time and tears,
And I know just what I'd change
If went back in time somehow
But there's nothing I can do about it now

Running through the changes
Going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate
Staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I've wasted
But that's a waste of time and tears
And I know just what I'd change
If went back in time somehow
But there's nothing I can do about it now.

I'm forgiving everything that forgiveness will allow
And there's nothing I can do about it now
-Willie Nelson

    Thank you for your comments on what I said in my HP. Actually, I thought that Goethe said this but I could be wrong. Have a nice evening.
