This port of the Baltic Sea is also nicknamed "Queen of the Hanseatic": it was indeed the capital of the Hanseatic League.
The city is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, especially for its red brick architecture. The old town of Lübeck lies on an island at the confluence of the Wakenitz with the Trave, navigable river that opens in the Baltic Sea 17 km further north-east, in the Travemünde district (Lubeckois since 1329). Several bridges over the Trave and Wakenitz link the old town to the newer ones. To the south, a canal (Elbe-Lübeck canal) connects the city to the Elbe.
The Lubeck region borders on the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It was therefore a border town of the partition of Germany in 1949 to its reunification in 1990, facing the German Democratic Republic. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
