Braunschweig Hotels

Having stood since medieval times, Braunschweig is full of traditional Lower Saxony charm, and you'll see gothic, romanesque, and many other influences. Down the winding cobbled streets you'll see plenty of historic buildings with dramatic spires, and it's a particularly popular destination in the winter months when the old-fashioned Christmas markets offer hand-crafted gifts and steaming hot drinks. It's also home to many music festivals and cultural activities, as well as a wide selection of museums.

Things to see

Brunswick Cathedral has features dating back to the 12th century, and with its tall spires and lion statue guarding the outside, it's an imposing romanesque building with a slightly pink tinge to the stone. Dukes and roman emperors are buried at the site, and the dramatic high ceilings and stone carvings make it a regal resting place. Dankwarderode Castle also tells the story of the Braunschweig nobility, this time during the saxon era, and the building overlooks a cobbled square where you'll find statues and monuments to the heroes of the city. The Kohlmarkt is another charming square which is surrounded on all sides by fascinating attractions, from the gothic Haus zur Rose which is marked by a golden statue perched on its peak, to the German renaissance style House of the Sun, there's plenty to see, and the square is full of cosy restaurants and stylish cafés with pavement tables so you can take in the view.
