Welcome to Braunschweig


Braunschweig was the capital of Duke Heinrich der Löwe (Henry the Lion), a 12th-century Guelph prince who was one of the most powerful people of his time, and you'll see his namesake lions popping up everywhere as the city's heraldic animal, not the least as a giant bronze sculpture atop a tall pillar in front of Heinrich's former castle.
