Enjoyable hour or so spent exploring the alleys along the wharf. Fascinating architecture and some nice little shops for souvenirs. Quite a few of the shops were shut as it’s out of season still but enough were open and it was nice to soak up...More

The old buildings and laneways are beautifully preserved and still functional businesses. View across the harbour on a cold winter’s night is delightful.

Today there are 62 buildings remain (after may fires) of this former Hanseatic trading empire from the 14th to mid-16th century. The houses are really well preserved and maintained. This site is classed on the UNESCO world heritage list

Hopefully the clouds will break at some point for the iconic photo of this lovely street. Worth exploring the shops. We walked it twice. Its a short excursion if you are tight for time.

The museum is in the right-most building as you are facing the wharf. The museum is quite old and kept intact with many rooms and bunks giving a real feel for like in the seventeenth century. The historic floors and walls are delightfully wobbly and...More
