Lübeck, Germany

by Agnes Felber November. 30, 2015 1133 views

Lübeck is a city in Schleswig-Holstein, northern Germany, and one of the major ports of Germany. On the river Trave, it was the leading city of the Hanseatic League and because of its extensive Brick Gothic architecture is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The Holsten Gate (“Holstein Tor”, later “Holstentor”) is a city gate marking off the western boundary of the old center of the Hanseatic city of Lübeck. This Brick Gothic construction is one of the relics of Lübeck’s medieval city fortification. Because its two round towers and arched entrance are so well known it is regarded today as a symbol of this German city.
