Luebeck is one of the largest cities in Northern Germany and it's old town is on an island surrounded by the river Elbe and a man-made canal, and as it was within walking distance of the hotel it seemed perfect for a morning stroll...
Loving the Gothic stylee!
At this point I decided that having had a date with the devil it was probably time to head back to the hotel. I was soaked through. Sometimes I can be too stubborn for my own good when it comes to insisting on seeing the cities I'm staying in.
Luebeck appeared to be a nice little city. I didn't get all the way across it where I could have found the more famous Holstentor gate and the city Dom. Perhaps if I'd had more time and less rain to deal with I'd have made it across :)
as it happens I'd needn't have worried.
