Historical museum in a landmark in German history (could be seen on the 50-DM bill and now on some of the 2 €uro coins). I liked the way some of the exhibits are displayed. A lot of stairs, so not suited for physically challenged people.

Holstentor is one of the surviving original gates to the old city of Lubeck and is fortunate to have survived without being destroyed by progress or war through the ages. Lucbeck was a fortress city from early ages but over time the original walls and...More

We visited Lubeck on the 29thof December 2018, so unfortunately the building was closed to the public. Notwithstanding I was pleased to see this iconic building resplendent in all it's glory. Hopefully, thanks to family ties, we'll get another chance to revisit this beautiful bulding,...More

Don't miss out on the guided tour at 3 p.m. on Saturdays. A wealth of information on how towns in the Hanse worked 900 years ago to create enormous wealth. A precursor to the European Union and probably more successful too.

Lubeck is a lovely Hanseatic town, perfect for a walk. Take a look at the Hanseatic Houses, the Holstentor,t he Salt Storage or take a boat trip, which gives a perfect view of the skyline

sinking into the ground..but a really cool way to come into the city. Check out the joke on the city side of the tower ... it has the letters S.P.O.L .... which is play on the old Roman phrase S.P.O.R (Senate and People of Rome)...More

This imposing gatehouse introduced us to the Hanseatic League capital, Lübeck as we entered town having walked down from the railway station. Only 40 minutes by train from Hamburg I would strongly recommend a visit to this picturesque town.

The Holstentor gives a perfect inside into the Hanseatic league and it wealth. Lubeck was one of the leading cities inspiring the architecture of Danzig Riga Bremen and many other towns

It was the first place we visited and I'm glad it was. The exhibits are well set out and provide a good background history to Lubeck which helped us later in the trip as we visited other historical sights. There are a lot of circular...More
