Landmark of Lübeck

A beautiful landmark of Lübeck. You will meet that when entering the old city center. A very nice piece of architecture.

This is a really attractive and photogenic gate, part of Lubecks old city wall. Popular with tourists, it houses a museum and is a key part of the old town tourist attractions.

Its a really interesting place for people who are interested in history, geography and so on. The exposure isn't big, but it's very different: 3 stores, different types of info. It will be good for family, children. But (!) be careful- strong ladder!

One of the only surviving gates into the old city of Lubeck, the outside of this building is really fun to study. It originally dates back to the 1400's and has been rebuilt twice since then. The museum inside isn't overly large, but it does a nice job of summarizing the local history. The large model of the island city... More

The imposing western entrance to the old Hanseatic city of Luebeck, now known as "the island". Built in the 1400s, it has fairy tale castle style turrets. You can go inside but we didn't.

A popular attraction, this is a very impressive gateway to the beautiful old town beyond. A photo stop here is pretty much essential when visiting the city.

This twin towers complex can be considered as the main touristic attraction in Lübeck. Simply a must see place but we preferred rather to spend time strolling the Hüxstraße.

A beautiful piece of architecture, the emblem of Lübeck, that deserves to be admired from the outside. The museum inside is not so interesting, although it has a very detailed wood model of Lübeck.

A must see when visiting Lübeck. Great and well maintained building. Historc place. I was amazed by its beauty. Over the centuries it seems a bit twisted but that is what made it more sympathic.
