Holstentor, Lubeck

2.8
#1 of 8 in Museums in Lubeck
Holstentor, a historical city gate, serves not only as an icon of Lübeck but also as a museum about the city's history. Originally built in the 15th century, it is one of the relics of Lübeck's medieval city fortifications. Spend time admiring the gate before entering the museum, and look for the Latin inscription, which translates to "Harmony within, peace without." Step inside to explore seven rooms that focus mainly on Lübeck's trade history. Squeamish visitors should skip the Holsten Gate exhibit, which contains medieval torture instruments.

  • Beautiful! Access point and symbol of the city. Not to be missed. Brings to mind the Ancient Splendors of the Hanseatic City!!!

  • The characteristic city gate from the 1400 's. Diverre was not in the inside the Museum. The text of the port means enough such as: harmony at home and peace abroad.

  • Here it starts at best the Lübeck Tour.Das former City gate was restored grade for many millions, and belongs to the Lübeck city image, as a symbol and reminder of Golden Hanseatic times. The Museum of the history of Lübeck is located in the gate. From here, wonderful to get to the old town and then now goes to City Hall.
