Holsten Gate and salt warehouses

Lübeck: Queen of the Hansa

Directly behind the banks of the river Trave rise the seven spires of the five Old Town churches that have made Lübeck's silhouette famous. The impressive Holsten Gate, landmark of the "Queen of the Hanseatic League", welcomes visitors with its late Gothic facade. The island-shaped Old Town with its unique brick architecture and the hidden oases presents itself with Nordic calmness. Exploring Lübeck's true beauty always means looking behind the scenes. Tucked away in the historic building structure, true museum treasures can be found in the Old Town e.g. St. Anne’s Museum and St. Anne’s Art Gallery, the Museum Behnhouse Drägerhouse and the Hospital of the Holy Spirit. Enter the world of the Middle Ages and immerse yourself in the life of the Low German merchants at the European Hansemuseum. The largest museum on the history of the Hanseatic League tells of the rise, power and fall of the Hanseatic League and shows how much you are still surrounded by it today. And the seaside resort Travemünde is only a stone's throw away from Lübeck's Old Town, with its big ships, fine Baltic Sea beach and unique promenade circuit.
