Peine is a town of 50,000 inhabitants in the heart of Germany between Hannover and Braunschweig and with fine natural surroundings. Peine offers interesting historical sights, fine cultural experiences and culinary delights with the town's market at the centre of fresh produce. The market is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
In the centre of town you will find the large market square, from where you can start a walk around the old town. The main square in Peine dates back to 1220 and has been the setting for life in the town for many centuries. At the square you will find the old town hall. The town has been ravaged by countless fires and several different town halls have been built over the years. The current one dates back to 1827 and several times a day the chimes of the town hall add to the atmosphere of the town.
