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.

The gatehouse is pretty sweet, definitely evokes a medieval town feel. Have not explored the museum inside sadly...
Love the Holstentor museum! It's a good introduction into historic rise of status of citizenship through trade.
Very nice and unique landmark which can be seen clearly..
Haven't been inside but the tower itself(not a separate landmark on Maps) is very much worth checking out.
