Historic Luebeck

Luebeck was the capital of the Hanseatic League in the middle ages and some of the architecture still reflects that heritage. Much of it was, of course, destroyed during WW II in an early British bombing attack.. The photo on top is of the medieval statues that used to line the bridge that crosses the River Trave entering Luebeck and are now housed in one of the rebuilt medieval cathedrals. There is a massive historic gate there that was shielded by scaffolding while I was there but it is very impressive. The two pictures below are of statues erected in the 20th century to replace the older versions.
