Abstract: We construct examples of two-step and three-step nilpotent Lie groups whose automorphism groups are ``small'' in the sense of either not having a dense orbit for the action on the Lie group, or being nilpotent (the latter being stronger). From the results we also get new examples of compact manifolds covered by two-step simply connected nilpotent Lie groups which do not admit Anosov automorphisms.
