Touring Lübeck

I thought I would add a few more photos of Lubeck, a beautiful city. It has many narrow streets surrounded by tall buildings. This situation allowed it to be burned and destroyed pretty thoroughly during WW II bombing attacks. Today, however, the city has been rebuilt sometimes using facades of old buildings, sometime rebuilding to look like the original, and a few buildings escaped destruction. One of the interesting aspects of the city is that there are often inner courtyard areas beyond the buildings facing the streets. At top, we walk through one of those areas. Next is a scene of another one and then the interior of a medieval church, most of which was designed as a hospital. Then another one of those inner courtyard areas and at bottom, a street scene.
