Lüneburg, a Hanseatic town near Hamburg that dates back more than 1,000 years, is the setting for one of northern Germany’s prettiest Christmas markets. There’s something for everyone in the market square outside the historical town hall, from festive wooden decorations and homemade beeswax candles to the town’s traditional saltstone lamps. Don’t miss the historical Christmas market on 6 and 7 December, when the aromas of cinnamon, spices and sweet chestnuts waft through the town’s narrow medieval streets. It’s like stepping back into the 16th century, with traders and craftsmen plying old-time wares such as pottery, hand-wrought pieces and felt bags.
