Modern life in front of a historical backdrop and an attractive shopping experience
The romantic heather towns of Lüneburg and Celle show a historical face with their brick Gothic and listed half-timbered houses. However, life between the facades reflects the zeitgeist of modernity. This interplay creates an inspiring atmosphere that invites you to marvel, stroll and linger.
You can go on a big shopping tour in Soltau, the city is located in the heart of the Lüneburg Heath and in the large designer outlet center, as well as in the city center, nothing to be desired when shopping.
Lüneburg - the Hanseatic city on the salt - has a 1000-year history. In the Middle Ages, so-called white gold was a promise of prosperity. Lüneburg had salt and its wealth can still be admired today on the Gothic brick facades. The German Salt Museum and the water tower that supplied the saltworks with fresh water tell stories from this time. The old town also shows traces: the salt mining has sunk the ground above the saltworks, giving some houses lovely vaults. Details like this make up the magic that the film scene loves. The telenovela “Rote Rosen” has been filmed in Lüneburg for years. But real life in a medieval setting is more beautiful than scripts. As a university city, Lüneburg is dynamic and future-oriented. In a museum, on a shopping tour, in a trendy bar or in a cozy restaurant - Lüneburg has the perfect pinch of salt in its flair.
A castle and over 450 half-timbered houses from three centuries - Celle is a city straight out of a fairy tale book. Kings, dukes and princesses once strolled through the alleys of the old town. Their weddings and affairs have already inspired writers and filmmakers. Past and present go hand in hand in Celle. The center of the residential city is the Welfen Castle. It is surrounded by the largest closed half-timbered ensemble in Europe. Right in the middle is the Celler Schlosstheater - the oldest baroque theater in Germany that is still in use. With the first 24-hour art museum in the world, the cultural bridge to modernity has been successfully built. And in the middle of the horse state of Lower Saxony, the state stud with the Celle stallion parades is a highlight for guests from all over the world.
It is only a stone's throw from Bispingen to Hamburg by car or train. Experience the impressive sights and let yourself be fascinated by the lively cultural scene or go shopping to your heart's content. From the impressive Hamburg harbor to the infamous Reeperbahn to the tranquil atmosphere of the old warehouse district. In addition to the water, a lot of space and greenery characterize the city. The spacious parks such as Stadtpark, Jenischpark and Planten un Blomen invite you to linger. As Hamburg was badly destroyed in World War II, today there are hardly any coherent complexes with old buildings. The cityscape is shaped by the towers of the five main churches, including Hamburg's landmark, the Hamburg Michel. Other architectural sights are the town hall, the Chilehaus, the main train station and the Hamburg-Dammtor train station, the old warehouse district, the television tower, the Köhlbrand bridge and the old Elbe tunnel.
The atmosphere in the Designer Outlet Soltau invites you to shop and relax. This is ensured by the appealing architecture: modern and regional style elements are cleverly combined. The premium designer outlet in the open air is modeled on a real village. Eight small half-timbered houses - the "Heide-Häuschen" - complement the ten large buildings. You stroll between the buildings across the plaza and in the shade of trees. Over 60 shops with well-known exclusive trading partners offer discounted items all year round.
