What people are saying:

"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 attribute of Lübeck

    Emblematic attribute of Lübeck. With its majestic position in town you just can't avoid it. Can be visited, but the exterior is imposing enough.

    Carry this as a screen saver on my phone!

    What an amazing building. Destroyed then rebuilt post war. The attention to detail and character is incredible.
