The closed townscape of medieval brickstone buildings is the reason for Lübeck's attractiveness of today and its place on the UNESCO list as World Heritage Site of Mankind.
There are many places well worthy a visit such as St. Mary's Church, Holstentor, Heiligen-Geist-Hospital and the City hall with its marketplace on the square in front of it.
The food was great, from fine cuisine at The Wullenwever with a star at the Guide Michelin, to more rustic food like bratwurst on the town square in front of City hall.
Lübeck is well worth a visit.
