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.

  • What a magnificent city with it's old gateway to the city. We spent an enjoyable day walking around the old town, and into the main market square. 
  • The stroll through the old town is a nice opportunity to shop like in the past always, and enjoy. The weather has also played with, so it was a really nice day

  • The charming streets invite you to long walks, intimate restaurants, czętokroć hidden in the courtyards. On the main street you can hang a eye on the fantastic structures, have a cup of coffee and do your shopping from top to toe;)
