Wolfenbüttel is a town in Lower Saxony.

Understand[edit]

While the town does have history going back centuries, it is overshadowed by nearby Braunschweig and its one claim to fame is rarely associated with the town - being the site of the Jägermeister distillery and their corporate headquarters.

Get in[edit]
