The capital of the Medieval trading power.

Lübeck – the former capital and Queen City of the Hanseatic League – was founded in the 12th century and prospered until the 16th century as the major trading centre for northern Europe. It has remained a centre for maritime commerce to this day, particularly with the Nordic countries. Despite the damage it suffered during the Second World War, the basic structure of the old city, consisting mainly of 15th- and 16th-century patrician residences, public monuments (the famous Holstentor brick gate), churches and salt storehouses, remains unaltered.[unesco]

  • Cole Street Café/Bar/Gallery, located in the Beckergrube adjacent to the Lübeck Theatre, is a great place for marvellous espresso and cocktails, little dishes and for hanging out on its old, seemingly antique furniture in a lounge-like setting. The owner spent years living in London, and after returning to provincial Lübeck he felt the urge to bring some international flair to this town. Cole Street has since become a place for locals and internationals to hang about. WiFi is provided for free.
