Lüneburg was only about a one hour drive south from the family's home, so Ingrid took me there on a day trip. Salt, "white gold“, made Lüneburg into a rich and powerful city in the middle ages. The saltworks, outputs about 20,000 tons of salt a year, supplying half of Europe.
Everywhere we went there were historical vaults, churches, medieval breweries, restaurants, beer gardens and street cafés. We enjoyed a fantastic day there and I did take a tour of one of the breweries.... are you surprised!?
