Hanseatic cities

Almost 200 towns and cities throughout Europe belong to DIE HANSE. The cultural heritage of the Hanseatic era is still visible in many places today - not only on the coasts of the North Sea and Baltic Sea.

From the smallest Hanseatic town of Straupe in Latvia with only 400 inhabitants to pulsating metropolises such as Hamburg or Cologne: experience the diversity of the European Hanseatic cities!
