City of Lübeck

Lübeck is located in the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein, the northernmost part of Germany, close to the Baltic coast. Founded in 1143, it was for several centuries the principal city of the Hanseatic League and still is a major port. The historic part of Lübeck is situated on an island in the river Trave. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The wealth of the city can still be seen in the public buildings and the homes of the rich merchants.

Bird’s eye view of Lübeck

Lübeck – like most cities of the Hanseatic League – is dominated by red brick architecture. Here it has been used through the centuries, from Gothic to Renaissance to Expressionism, including the seven steeples of the five major churches. The landmark of the city is the famous Holsten Gate, one of the relics of Lübeck's medieval city fortifications and one of two remaining city gates.
