The Burgtor (Castle Gate) is one of only two of Lubeck’s original four medieval gates which survive. The oldest parts of Lubeck’s Burgtor date back to the thirteenth century, whilst its tower is a later addition.
The other – and more well-known – remaining gate is known as Holstentor. The Burgtor is part of Lubeck’s UNESCO listing.
Lubeck Town Hall is a picturesque medieval building which began as a thirteenth century cloth hall.
