Luneburg. Had been famous for its salt, first mention of that trade in 956 AD - see ://www.niedersachsen-tourism.de/en/regionen-staedte/staedte/lueneburg/index.php/ Twenty-thousand tons a year at its peak (when was that?) and Luneberg supplied half of Europe with its salt, says the Niedersachsen site.

Bach was born in 1685, and orphaned in 1694. He moved here in 1700 as a student, was a chorister here, continuing his education, and practising. Himmler killed himself here in 1945, before he could be brought to trial.

Back to Luneburg: Tilted, slanted steeples, the the step-architecture, recalling the ancient Maya, does it not?
