Welcome to the residence of the Guelphs and the home of “Jägermeister”
A former residence of the Guelph dukes, a lively centre of activity with 53,000 inhabitants and many halftimbered houses, Wolfenbüttel will welcome you not only with its historical atmosphere but also all the amenities of a cosmopolitan yet friendly little town. You will be delighted by the old quarter with over 600 timberframe buildings, the magnificent churches, the prestigious Palace district, the worldfamous Herzog August Library and the Lessinghaus – together they make up a work of art which is unmatched in Lower Saxony.
By the way, did you know that Wolfenbüttel is particularly famous for its herbal liqueur, Jägermeister? Originating from the town of Wolfenbüttel, it has meanwhile conquered more than 100 countries. So make sure you sample it when you are in town!
