Mölln lies on the so-called Salt Road, which was once one of the most important trade routes in northern Germany. Mölln was a junction on the Salt Road from Lüneburg, where the salt was mined, to Lübeck, where the salt was used to salt fish that was sent on to the Baltic countries and Scandinavia. Impressive old buildings and winding alleys in the small town tell of the town's former glory days. From the old water tower you can enjoy the view of the medieval town centre with the town hall and the Nicolai church.
In the square by the cathedral you'll find a statue of the city's world-famous jester, Till Eulenspiegel, about whom there are a wealth of cheerful, crude and cheeky tales. It is said that Till Eulenspeigel was buried in Mölln and his profile is repeated throughout the city. Touching in the statue of Till Eulenspiegel's toes or thumb is said to bring good luck.
Mölln has a fantastic location on the Lauenburg Lakes. The 40 lakes mean that you can see water almost everywhere and have many opportunities for lovely walks around the lakes or in the woods. On the roads around the lakes there are many small thatched cottages where you can eat your lunch or take a well-deserved break.
