“Nice for Fotos”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

The Holstentor was the first thing we saw before entering the Old Town. This is the famous landmark appearing on postcards and in travel books. We were certainly impressed with it's architecture and history, and we took quite a few nice fotos as well. Definitely a must see if visiting Lübeck!

“Not to be missed”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

A great explanation of the histtory and rise of Lubeck. The model of the city at its height is very instructive.

There is some english translation of the main points and the main film can also run in English. This is a fun visit for children.

“Unique Entrance to the City”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The Holstentor is a very unique building and the symbol of Lubeck. Lot of opportunities for nice photographs. If you go down the street a bit to the right you can see that the Holstentor has a considerable lean to it.
