Thanks to its convenient location, the Best Western Hotel Braunschweig Seminarius is a popular accommodation during trade fairs. Both Brunswick and Hanover offer a varied mix of trade fairs. Apart from trade fairs, both cities are popular venues for sports and music events.
Brunswick offers a perfect mix between tradition and modernity: Founded in the 12th century, the city has turned into a vibrant metropolis with an extensive cultural offer, various museums, relaxing green spaces and important sports events. The “Burgplatz" (Castle Square), where the cathedral is located, and the Residence Palace evoke memories of the city’s medieval origins. Despite its medieval touch, Brunswick is home to a large number of modern buildings like the extravagant Happy RIZZI House. Dankwarderode Castle, the State Museum and the centuries-old half-timbered buildings are further "must-sees" to include in your bucket list.
Apart from the cultural programme in Brunswick, the city offers an impressive range of sports and leisure activities. The first football match on European mainland was played in the “Lion City” of Brunswick in 1874, and the Eintracht Braunschweig football team became German champion in 1967. Brunswick loves to dance - the Brunswick Dancing Club is the global no. 1 in formation dance. Brunswick is home to over 200 sports clubs and hosts top-level competitions. Basketball Bundesliga, American Football, swimming and athletics competitions regularly take place in the city.
If you have seen everything there is to see in Brunswick, you should take a trip to the neighbouring city of Wolfsburg. The city is reached quickly and easily from the Best Western Hotel Braunschweig Seminarius. One of the most famous attractions is the “Autostadt Wolfsburg” where automotive fans can learn more about Volkswagen and the automobile industry. Tickets for the Autostadt are available at the hotel reception. If you are into science, we recommend a visit to the phæno Science Center, where you will experience impressive phenomena. If wou prefer to take it easy, hunt some bargains at the Designer Outlets Wolfsburg or soak up some sun at Allerpark Wolfsburg.
900 years ago, in a vast area of swampland between Gleismarode and Weddel, monks from the Riddagshausen Monastery created a cultivated landscape with fish ponds, fields and meadows. From these, a pristine pond, meadow and forest landscape emerged, with richly structured ecosystems and a diverse flora and fauna.
Explore the medieval St. Blaise's Cathedral, Brunswick Castle and the "Vieweghaus" as part of the Brunswick history museum around the "Burgplatz" (Castle Square). Do not forget to take a picture of the lion statue in its centre!
Over 300 phenomena are waiting to be investigated at Germany’s largest science centre. Every visitor is sure to have their own personal “Eureka!” moment. The phæno is located only 26 km from the Best Western Hotel Braunsschweig Seminarius.
