Lüneburg, a Hanseatic town dating back over 1,000 years, is the setting for a Christmas wonderland offering something for everyone. Look out for its traditional saltstone lamps as you browse around the stalls in the market square, outside the historical town hall, in the old lanes and at St. John's Church. Another highlight is the historical Christmas market on 7 and 8 December, with medieval crafts and stalls.
