Lübeck and the Hanseatic League
Lübecks wealth and growth are closely connected to its outstanding and leading role as a great city in the time of the Hanse. A league of individual merchants and towns along the Baltic sea up to the North Sea. The well-preserved old town testifies to its glory and wealth in medieval times. Since Lübeck was so strategically important in the 13th Century and because the main jurisdiction of the “Hanse” was situated in this historic town, it is often referred to as the queen of the Hanseatic League.
