Lübeck, the current World Cultural Heritage and the former Queen of the Hanseatic League was founded in 1143 as a Christian merchant settlement by Count Adolf von Schauenburg. After the city was cremated by a fire in 1157, Henry the Lion founded 1158/59 in the old place Lübeck again. After Lübeck was in 1160 Bischhofssitz, Henry the Lion in 1173 laid the foundation stone for one of the largest brick buildings in the north, the Lübeck Cathedral. In 1226 Emperor Frederick II granted the Lübeckers imperial immediacy. This imperial freedom lasted 711 years. The Lübeck Council had built next to the town hall of St. Mary.
Only after several modifications, the church was completed in 1350. The Luebeck Marienkirche possessed until approximately 100 years the with 125 meters highest Kirchenturmpaar of the world. At the end of the 13th century also the Holy Spirit Hospital and several citizens ‘and merchants’ houses with their stepped gables were built. Since Lübeck emanated the building ground in the 14th century, gates were broken into the existing facades in order to cultivate the yards and gardens behind. Thus arose for the poorer people ganghouses and for the wealthier the courtyards. A number of these courtyards and ganghouses can still be visited today.
The construction of the road network on the city island has remained unchanged since the Middle Ages.
Discover Lübeck museums
The culture in Lübeck has a high priority. 30 main and honorary church musicians, the theater with opera, operetta and drama, as well as symphony concerts and chamber music offer a wide range throughout the year.
Among the many museums in Lübeck, the St. Annen Museum occupies a very special position. It is one of the most beautiful museums in Germany and has one of the most significant collections of ecclesiastical art. But the other museums such as Behnhaus (municipal painting collection), Buddenbrookhaus, castle monastery, arsenal or the museum in Holstentor are definitely worth a visit.
