Hanseatic City of Lübeck, Germany

The ancient harbor town, a centre of international trade since the Middle Ages and the “Queen of the Hanseatic League“, has been on UNESCO’s List of World Cultural Heritage Sites since 1987.

Lübeck’s old town is built on a peninsula surrounded by water on three sides, and houses more than 1000 of the finest examples of Northern German brick Gothic architecture.

In the front you see the Holstentor (the Holsten Gate) and on the right the Salzspeicher (salt storehouses). And in the back the St Petrikirche (Church of St Peter).
