Take a walk and discover
The historic 'City of the Lion' combines a lively town centre with green open spaces. First mentioned in 1031, Lower Saxony's second largest city is renowned for its diverse cultural life, great shopping and a lively restaurant scene.
Especially in the pre-Christmas period, you can browse the Magniviertel for a little treasure as a Christmas present. After the Second World War the Magnikirche with the Magnikirchplatz was rebuilt. All around, small shops and cafés settled in the historic half-timbered buildings, inviting you to discover and linger.
Climb the highest peak in northern Germany in a cosy way, while enjoying a hot cup of coffee. The historic Brocken Railway takes you through the picturesque winter forests of the Harz up to the Brocken. With clear skies, you can expect a fantastic view of the historic towns of the Harz, framed by a snow-capped, hilly landscape.

Brunswick TOP 5
First time in Braunschweig? Don't miss the historically significant Burgplatz lined by the cathedral, Dankwarderode Castle, the Landesmuseum and pretty half-timbered buildings.
THE BEST VIEWS OF Brunswick
Get a bird's eye view of the city. Climb the 153 steps to the Quadriga on top of the Residenzschloss. Or the 161 steps up the Rathaus tower. Or the 389 steps of the Südturm von St. Andreas. Braunschweig at night: take a tour of the Magniviertel quarter. Braunschweig by boat: A trip on the river Oker is a great way to see the city.
Brunswick's FAVOURITE QUARTER
With its shops, cafés and narrow streets of pretty half-timbered houses, the Magniviertel quarter is a popular haunt for visitors and residents alike. Tip: don't miss the Altstadt festival in late summer. The Michaelisviertel and the Aegidienviertel quarters are also worth a visit.
