Dreaming of your
perfect day in Braunschweig

Burgplatz Braunschweig c) BSM Frank Sperlin Dream of a a perfect day in Braunschweig and the footsteps of the Guelphs and the Hanseatic traders

Walking in the footsteps of Guelphs and Hanseatic merchants, the short distances within the city allow you to discover numerous
attractions from across the centuries by bike or on foot. You can take in some natural beauty in the elegant parks, the surrounding
countryside and along the Oker river. Whether you’re looking for historical buildings, green oases or urban hustle and bustle –
Braunschweig has all the attractions of a big city for a perfect day out. With a population of approx. 250,000, the ‘Lion City’ is
the biggest city between Hannover and Berlin. It is also an attractive shopping city,
a vibrant cultural hotspot and a hi-tech hub.
