Lübeck, as the headquarters of the Lufthansa League, gathered a lot of wealth at that time, so heavy walls were built to protect the city. The Holstein Gate had four gates at the earliest, and the third gate from the outside to the present is preserved.
"Holstein Gate" is the west gate of the old city, so its west-facing part of the city wall is very thick. The two towers are equipped with shooting holes. There are also earthen cannons in the building. The narrow window of the middle gate is used for splashing asphalt. And the boiling water, of course, is to attack the enemy siege.
For the history of the founding of the ancient city of Lübeck, the "age" of the Holstein Gate is not too big. It has only guarded the ancient city for more than 600 years, but the years of polishing still made it overwhelmed, not only sinking but also tilting, and I don’t know. It can also protect this ancient city for many years.

The symbol of Lübeck, the Holstein Gate, a world cultural heritage, is a place worth visiting. The architectural style is very distinctive, the round body, the towering spire, the thick city wall, and there is a museum inside that costs 7 euros. It is relatively simple, but you can go or not. It is also a good choice to spend a day here slowly and enjoy the passage of time.
Historic landmarks are not to be missed when you come to Lübeck. 7 euros can go to the museum inside. To be honest, if you look at it from the perspective of a museum, the content is relatively simple, but many of the installations in the museum are obviously very careful and interactive. They are suitable for children who can speak English or German. Of course, the premise is that there are few people here. Otherwise, for a small booth, let alone watching these devices, it may be difficult to turn around.
You can have a daze on the large lawn next to Holstentor. This red brick gate is also a symbol of the country. It has the flavor of a fairy-tale city, but the Latin inscription on the wall: concordia domi forls Pax, meaning Internal harmony, external peace. Is this a German-style stability maintenance?
