Tour description provided by Viator

Lübeck’s Holstentor gate is one of the best known German buildings worldwide. Inside this historic monument the Holstentor Museum puts the history of Lübeck’s hanseatic trade links, its power and its wealth on display. Exhibits such as historical ship models, suits of armor, weapons, legal instruments, and articles of merchandise offer many exciting discoveries to the visitors.
Visit: Holstentor, Lubeck, Schleswig-HolsteinThe exhibition »The Power of Trade« – Die Macht des Handels – thus illustrates the success story with which the merchants of medieval Lübeck put their city firmly on the international map. Built in 1464, from its beginnings the Holstentor served both Lübeck’s defence and its prestige – a massive double-towered city gate. Above the round arched gateway entrance is the Latin inscription in golden letters: CONCORDIA DOMI FORIS PAX (unity at home and peace abroad). The monument as we see it today is the result of considerable restoration work: in the mid 19th century it was more or less a ruin.
