Germany: Holsten Gate in Lübeck

Last Saturday I got three postcards: two from Germany and one from the Åland Islands.

One of the cards from Germany shows the Holsten Gate in Lübeck. The Holsten Gate is one of only two preserved city gates of Lübeck's medieval city fortifications. It was built in the style of the Brick Gothic in 1464. Today is the Holsten Gate a symbol of Lübeck and houses a museum about Lübeck's history.
