The Hanseatic Explorer
Lübeck, "Queen of the Hanseatic cities", was founded in 1143. Its appearance has been shaped by its glorious past as a free imperial and Hanseatic city. Surrounded by water, the old town, with its seven towers and five principal churches, is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Nearby is Germany's Baltic coast and the wonderful historic port of Hamburg.
