Revisiting Luneburg, Germany with the Cape Gazette
In October, Diane Barlow and Peter Jahn of Lewes visited Peter’s hometown of Luneburg, Germany, situated south of Hamburg.
The old town, established in 900 A.D., rose to wealth and independence through salt and limestone mining.
The Gothic brick and timber frame houses still show the beauty of Medieval craftsmanship made possible by builders’ skills and wealthy merchants’ finances - a walk through over a thousand years of history.
Today, as a member of the Hanseatic City League, the town welcomes visitors from all over the world.
