Lubeck, Germany

I've seen hundreds of medieval city gates during my travels through Europe and Lubeck's Holsten gate ranks near the top on my list of favorites. It dates back to 1464.
 Lubeck's location near the Baltic Sea makes it one of Germany's major ports.
 This was taken from my hotel room which juts out over the water.
 Lubeck's city hall in all its brick glory.

 Lubeck, population 218,000, has many brick buildings.
 In medieval times Lubeck had four city gates. This is the other remaining gate.
This is a backside view of the gate.
