Holstentor, Lubeck, Germany
The old town of Lubeck is known as the “Queen of the Baltic” and was the most powerful Hanseatic town during the Middle Ages. The old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site & an architectural gem, noted for its Backsteingotik or Gothic brick architecture. The Holstentor is the city gate and the emblem of Lubeck. It was constructed between 1464 and 1478 to mark the western boundary of the old city center. To see my best photos of Germany, please visit the Germany section of my portfolio.
