Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown), Lubeck
(4.7/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown) represents one of the best-preserved maritime cities in Germany. Church steeples and a compact, medieval core dominate this UNESCO World Heritage site. You can explore the winding streets and old fortifications. At one point in the past, this was accessible only via imposing gates set within the walls. Admire the wide array of Gothic-style architecture and the mix of northern European fashions on display. The latter is a product of the city's 600-year position as the capital of the Hanseatic League. The giant Holstentor gate, a two-towered structure, is a symbol of Lubeck itself. Be sure to stop at a shop for marzipan treats, considered to be the local specialty.

  • Old town square where the Town Hall, with historical buildings and very well preserved. Super nice place to visit. On Saturdays there's fair of flowers, fruits, verudras and some local products.

  • The old merchant houses / storage, and the stalls of Brockhaus are legendary, unfortunately the cobblestones of what can be found everywhere in the city makes quick "Fußlahm"!

  • In celebration of my birthday, I had invited my two daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren on weekends. The old town is extremely interesting with many small farms, as one can look inside. the many churches with bl, (a) copy of Lübeck, the two smashed bells located on the aisle from the bombardment under 2. World War II in l943. Go for a walk along the river Trave and tag if necessary. a sailing boat with one of turbådene. Wonderful shopping opportunities. Finished off with a visit to the fine Patisserie with delicious chocolate and beautiful cakes for.
