NOTES: Situated at the estuary of the Trave River, Lubeck is the largest German port on the Baltic Sea and was for several centuries the prime port of the Hanseatic League. The Burgtor, the north gate to the old city, is one of two towered gates remaining from the old fortifications, the other being the Holstentor. It was designed by the city builder, Nikolaus Peck, and completed in 1444.
