Lueneburg's St. Michaelis Church

The oldest parts of St. Michael's Church in Lueneburg date back to the 1200s, perhaps a bit further. The Benedictine monks and nuns who founded the place are first mentioned in a degree from the Holy Roman Emperor, Otto I, in 956 a.d. In the document, Otto determines that the monks have the right to mine the salt at Lueneburg. Johann Sebastian Bach sang in the choir here for two years.
