Lüneburg

Lüneburg is a medieval town in Northern Germany (latitude 53.250, longitude 10.417), half an hour south of Hamburg, two hours from Berlin, a day from Sydney, Australia. The city of Lüneburg is over 1,000 years old. Established as a salt mining community, it enjoyed great prosperity in its early years, supplying the whole Scandinavian and Baltic Sea States with its salt. Renowned for its opportunities and affluence, Lüneburg was the place to be for Germany’s most well-to-do – which is still evident in the well-preserved inner city. Today, Lüneburg is essentially a university town. Our lavish 13th and 14th century churches, St John’s, St Michael’s, and St Nicolai, the beautiful baroque Main Square and the tranquil medieval monastery attract visitors from all around the world.

Leuphana University Lüneburg

The Leuphana University Lüneburg was founded in 1946 as teacher training college. At the moment, the university is trying to implement the results and references of the Bologna-Process. The name Leuphana derives from a settlement near the river Elbe that is mentioned in a map of the antique geographer Ptolemy in the second century.
