Lovely spot in Lübeck with magical views or the spires and architecture. This is a must when travelling to Lübeck! You can cross the bridge into Lübeck.

You cannot miss this amazing old town gate built in the 1400s and looking like a sinking sponge cake. Even on a wet day juggling an umbrella you have to keep snapping photos from all different angles. So very pretty is this town of Lubeck.

The gate was built in early 14th Century but well maintain and photographical but need to be patience if you want to take a photo without passing cars and/or pedestrian. Be cautious when using the public toilet in this area.
