Henry the Lion (1129-1195) had this statue of a lion set up on the Burgplatz around 1166.
Actually this is only a replica, but the original is still on display just a few steps away in the Dankwarderode Castle, where it has been set up indoors to protect it from air pollution.
Second photo: This large half-timbered house is called the Von Veltheimsches Haus and is one of several historic buildings on the Burgplatz. Unusually, for a German city, these are mainly the original buildings, not replicas.
