Photographed millions of times it is a must-see. Not the most beautiful building on earth, but with some interesting history. I am glad the historic city council vote was 42-41 to keep it and not to tear it down!

Inside the gate is a museum explaining the evolution and trading routes of the Hanseatic League, with a mix of panels, objects and hands-on features. It is very well done, educational without being boring, and a lot of it is in English as well. Visiting it gives you half price access to another museum of your choice.

It is a famous German touristic attraction, so is worth to see. Nothing amazing, but it was on former German currency so take a look.

This tor was on my German learning book when I was younger and I finally visited in 2012. Inside every floor has 2 rooms of historical exhibits. Each tells interesting stories. I did not know that the tor was never used as a fortress. Lubeck is easy to walk around. Eat some marzipan cakes and visit this tor - it is just 5 mins. from the cafe!

The gate is impressive and easily accessible from Lubeck center. It is worth going there to tak a photo.
