“Lots of stairs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is well worth a visit. There are a lot of displays inside. Practicularly good was the model (by school children) of the old city with the walls. There were a lot of stairs to go up and down to see the whole Tor. The staff were friendly. There was a toilet but it was up one stairway and then down another. There was a lot of history in the museum.

“Lübeck's #1 tourist attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

The Holstentor is know the world over as Lübeck's most important landmark. It is part of the original defense parameter of the old city and was built in the 13th century. The interior of the two sturdy towers contains a recently updated museum that focuses on Lübeck's history as a core city in the Hanseatic league.

“Interesting monument”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is nice old gates to the town with remarkable architecture and great athmosphere!

You need a nice shunny day to enjoy it the best - but even otherwise it is smashing with all the old statues and brick works !
Nice place - worth a visit as all Lubeck!

“Great Entree to City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Seeing this medieval city gate is the perfect starting point for Lubeck. We loved the city and its centuries-old architecture. This marvelous gate, astride the river, puts this great city in its historical perspective.
