Take a tour of Holsten Gate in Lübeck, Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. It is the signature building of Lubeck, Germany and a powerful symbol of civic strength. The Holsten Gate is an impressive monument of a bygone age in Lubeck's history. Originally the gate was part of the town's defensive wall, marking the western boundary. It dates back to the 15th century, when Lubeck was a strongly fortified medieval city. The city was known as the Queen of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trade organization. Though Lubeck has since expanded past the Holsten Gate, they still remember what it signifies.
