Welcome to a lively city with abundant charm – the “City of Henry the Lion”!
Braunschweig, the charming “little sister” of Hanover, combines an urban lifestyle with tranquility, culture with sports, history with modern times, family values with student lifestyle, and the academic world with the commercial world.
Contradictory? Not at all. Thanks to the redoubled efforts of the Braunschweig local planning authority to combine all facets of a large city (250,000 inhabitants) in a charming and innovative manner in recent years, everyone can satisfy their own personal needs here.
With understandable pride, Braunschweig also regards itself as the „cradle of German football“. Learn more about the full history of „Konrad Kochs - born 1874“ here.
The surrounding Lower Saxony region offers abundant opportunities for recreational activities . Attractions such as cycling in the Elm district, rock-climbing or skiing in the Harz Mountains, or touring on the Mittelland Canal and its locks also offer opportunities for pleasant tranquility.
With a bit of luck, you may run into a local who speaks with the peculiar ‘sharp S’ typical of this region – but be careful not to s‑tumble over the s‑harp s‑tones!... .
