Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown), Lubeck

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. To visit Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown) and other attractions in Lubeck, use our Lubeck trip planner .
