A must visit when in Luebeck. Just a short walk from the center of town, this is a scenic and vibrant area. Plenty of space to relax and take in the scenery, do some photography and watch the world go by.

Really cool gothic building. If you are in Lübeck it's definitely worth a look as it's very unique and historic to the area, plus makes for a great photo!
