Lübeck is perhaps the most traditional and historically significant city in Schleswig-Holstein. With a population of 215,000, Lübeck is the second largest city in the northernmost federal state and, apart from the state capital Kiel, the only municipality with metropolitan status. Not far from the border with Mecklenburg on the Trave River and with the Travemünde district located directly on the Holstein Baltic Sea coast, Lübeck forms the center of the southeast region of Schleswig-Holstein. The historic Hanseatic metropolis with the famous Holsten Gate and its equally famous marzipan culture inspires among other things with a unique old town and numerous other cultural highlights such as the Buddenbrook House described by Thomas Mann.
