Lübeck founded in 1143 is a city in northern Germany close to the Baltic Sea and one of the major ports of the country. Surrounded by water on all sides, the old town has a historic centre dominated by seven church steeples.
Originally The Holsten Gate was part of the town's defensive wall, marking the western boundary. It dates back to the 15thC, when Lubeck was a strongly fortified medieval city. This Brick Gothic construction is one of two remaining city gates, the other being the Citadel Gate ("Burgtor").
Together with the old city centre (Altstadt) of Lübeck it has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987
