Wolfenbüttel – 1000 half-timbered houses and Jägermeister

Wolfenbüttel – 1000 half-timbered houses and Jägermeister

Wolfenbüttel is known as the home of JÄGERMEISTER herbal liqueur, but did you know it’s also home to the second-largest palace in Lower Saxony? Or that the writer Gotthold Ephraim Lessing spent the last years of his life in Wolfenbüttel? No? Wolfenbüttel was the residence of the Guelph dukes for over three centuries. Largely undamaged by wars waged through its long history, the historical centre with the world-renowned Duke August’s Library, Lessing’s house and the first Protestant-built church is much as it was in Guelph days. Discover Lessing’s city, where there is always something more to see and do.
