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 Hannover 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 regions.
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.
