Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown), Lubeck

(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ 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.

  • It is less than an hour by train from Hamburg. If you look at it, two people go and back for 30 euros. Several trains a day and are very well. Lübeck is one of the best preserved medieval level cities. Very highly recommended to spend the day here.

  • We not found it interesting, but also a little hypothermic, so quaint as many other historic cities.
