Lübeck Holsten Gate, copyright Lübeck und Travemünde Tourist-Service GmbH
There are reminders of Lübeck's colourful past everywhere you go. The old quarter, ringed by water, is an impressive illustration of medieval brick Gothic architecture and brings 1,000 years of history to life. The entire oval old town - the setting for Thomas Mann's novel "Buddenbrooks" - is a UNESCO world heritage site. Lübeck is also a modern trading port and, via the coastal resort of Travemünde, a terminal for ferries to and from Scandinavia and the Baltic.
