Luckau (Wendland) is a village or Gemeinde (municipality) in the southern part of the district of Lüchow-Dannenberg, Lower Saxony, Germany. The village is located in the region known as Wendland about ten kilometers southwest of the district capital (or county seat) of Lüchow (Wendland). The southern border of the municipality coincides with the border between the German federal states of Lower Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.
Luckau is one of the rundlings (a village arranged in a circle around a commons) that are frequently to be found in Wendland. The name of the town comes from the Slavic lauck and means leek or onion field.
