Next we will visit to Lubeck which the Henry the Lion founded in 1159 at the confluence of the Trave and Schwartau rivers. In 1226, Emperor Frederick II granted the city the status of a free imperial city; this was the beginning of a commercial prosperity that led Lübeck to become the head of the Hanseatic League, of which more than a hundred cities were to become part. In 1370, the Hanseatic victory and the peace of Stralsund with the Danes brought Lübeck to its apogee. The capital of the North became the hub of trade between the Baltic and Western Europe. With its imposing old town, featuring major works of Nordic red-brick Gothic, Lübeck is also a lively and pleasant city. It has been inscribed by UNESCO on the World Heritage List and is one of the cities in Germany with the most variety in styles and periods from the Middle Ages to Classicism and from the Gothic to the Renaissance.

The dark bricks of the Town Hall make a striking contrast to the traditional red-brick construction of the surrounding buildings.
