German Salt Museum
The German Salt Museum (German: Deutsche Salzmuseum / Industriedenkmal Saline Lüneburg) in the German town of Lüneburg was established on the site of the old production facilities of the Lüneburg Saltworks (Lüneburger Saline) when it was closed in 1980.
This industrial memorial which is based in the boiling house built in 1924 is one of the earliest of its type. It recalls the history of the oldest and, at one time, the greatest industrial operation in central Europe.
