In medieval times Lauenburg was a waypoint on the Old Salt Route, while today it is the southern terminus of the Elbe-Lübeck Canal.
The Old Salt Road or Alte Salzstrasse went from Lüneburg to Lübeck. The salt was brought by carts from Lüneburg to Lauenburg at the Elbe river, from there via Mölln to Lübeck.
