Braunschweig - The lion city
After its founding by Henry the Lion, the city of
Braunschweig was shaped throughout the centuries by the
Guelphs and the Hanseatic League. Today, Braunschweig,
with its population of around 250,000, is the largest city
between Hanover and Berlin: it is an attractive city for
shopping, has a lively cultural scene and is the centre of one
of Europe’s most concentrated research region. The middle
ages can be experienced here in the winding alleyways of
the Magni Area with its small timber-framed houses or in the
Burgplatz square with its historic buildings just as the modern
urban lifestyle can be experienced in this pulsing shopping
city. Everything is easy to get to, which is characteristic of a
big city - just as the wonderful parks and nature which offer
peace, quiet and balance along the banks of the Oker river.
Braunschweig has a lot to offer, not least of all its unique
charm: that of a large and modern city with a rich past, where
you can find refreshing green oases of leisure alongside the
bustle of inner city life. First mentioned in records in 1031,
Braunschweig continued to evolve, from the 12th century on
strongly influenced by the House of Guelf and the Hanseatic
tradition. Magnificent historical buildings such as
Dankwarderode Castle and St. Blasii Cathedral in the heart
of the city, as well as streets lined with historic houses, still
bear witness to Braunschweig’s eventful past.
