Today, Leuphana University is regarded as a model institution for inter- and transdisciplinary research, academic organisation, innovation in teaching and academic transfer.

Lüneburg is a 1,000-year old city of 73,000 inhabitants, located near Hamburg. Established as a salt mining community, it enjoyed great prosperity in its early years, supplying the whole Scandinavian and Baltic Sea regions with salt. Renowned for its opportunities and affluence, Lüneburg was the place to be for Germany's most wealthy inhabitants, which is still evident in the well-preserved inner city. Today, Lüneburg is essentially a university town. The lavish 14th and 15th century churches, St John's, St Michael's, and St Nicolai, the beautiful baroque Main Square and the tranquil medieval monastery attract visitors from all around the world. The pedestrian city centre invites visitors to linger. A great number of well-assorted specialist shops in historic buildings featuring steep gables provide extensive shopping opportunities, and many cafés and pubs open their doors to visitors every day. In particular, the bars situated at Stint and in Schröderstraße offer a varied nightlife. Lüneburg also is a very vivid cultural spot; numerous musicians, artists and actors are active in clubs, studios and theatres of the town.
