The Braunschweiger Land once formed the heart of the historical Duchy of Braunschweig. In addition to its medieval castles and cathedrals, it boasts renowned libraries, prestigious art museums and world-class piano makers.
Braunschweig came into its own in the 12th century as a residence of Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria. He renovated Dankwarderode Castle and built the Braunschweig Cathedral. Today, they are among the city's foremost landmarks.
