Wolfenbüttel The Essential
Recommended
For three centuries Wolfenbüttel was the seat of the dukes of Brunswick and Lüneburg until the court transferred to Brunswick in 1753. The precise, spacious plan of the small town with its die-straight streets linking large symmetrical squares, makes it one of the finest examples of Renaissance town planning in Germany.
