Germany 

Lübeck in Germany's northernmost state, Schleswig-Holstein, is a glorious medieval town. Although it's easily accessible from Hamburg, Lübeck is off the main tourist trails and can be a quiet alternative to the more spectacular attractions further south. The old town was heavily bombed in WW II but has been sensitively rebuilt and the town's stately charm is apparent today. Most things of interest to see are in the Altstadt, an egg-shaped island surrounded by the water defences of the Trave and the city moat. Lübeck, once the former "Queen of the Hanseatic League", is today a modern city enclosed by historic walls. There is good reason to be proud of it, as the UNESCO has declared the intact ensemble of churches, merchant's houses, warehouses and small narrow alleys in the Old Town part of the world´s cultural heritage.
