Introducing Braunschweig

Still famous as the city of Heinrich der Löwe (Henry the Lion), nine centuries after this powerful medieval duke made it his capital, Braunschweig (Brunswick) reveals its past with a slightly meandering but pleasant historic old town. Today, despite a provincial feel, it can be an interesting place to while away a day or two, not least because of its handful of museums and impressive buildings. These give a good insight into the history and lives of people in this part of Germany.
