Just outside of Luneburg is a place called the Kalkberg. Very early in Luneburg's history, the town was ruled by a duke who had a palace on the Kalkburg. About 1,000 years ago, the people revolted and attacked the the palace and the duke and his family and forces fled to take up residence in nearby Celle. At top is the view from the Kalkberg with the steeples of St. Nicolai at the left, St. Michaelis in the foreground center, and St. Johannis on the right. Next, is a monument to the people who attacked the palace. Then there is a medieval cannon. At bottom, is another view of some walkers enjoying the view from the Kalkberg.

And the Duke's decedents are still sour about it.
