    At the Obertrave directly next to the Holstentor are the Salzspeicher. They were built in the years between 1579 and 1745. They are a group of warehouses in the style of brick renaissance. The warehouses are located on the Lübeck Obertrave next to the Holstentor. Until 1839, the store closest to the Holstentor was owned by the "Saline Oldesloe". This is indicated by a relief in the clinker of the façade.Originally, the storage buildings were used to store salt from Lüneburg via the Alte Salzstraße and later via the Stecknitz Canal and from the saline Oldesloe and brought by barges on the Trave.
    The salt stores
    This salt was exported by Lübeck as the basis of its former wealth to all Scandinavia. The salt was mainly needed for the preservation of fish caught in Norway and Scania, thus enabling the herring trade as a fast food with the inland. The location on Lübeck 's oldest bridge, the so - called Holstentor Bridge, marked the border between the seaport and inland port in the Middle Ages, with its connection to the Elbe through the Stecknitz Canal.The Lübecker Salzspeicher were filming location for the film "Nosferatu - A Symphony of horror" by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau and served as a backdrop for the house that the vampire rents. Today, the warehouses are used by a textile department store.

    Right next to the Holstentor, this row of houses from the years 1579-1745, which served as a salt store. The salt came from the Lüneburg area and waited for shipment to Scandinavia.

    Continue by bike over the Obertravebrücke and then on the road to the Obertrave - direct view of the Salzspeicher and opportunities to stop.

    The building ensemble was also the location for the film "Nosferatu - A Symphony of Horror" by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau.

    One of the most beautiful places in Lübeck, I think !! The Obertrave with restaurants, music, people ... all of that in summer.
    In autumn you can get your feet wet on the bank - there are always floods ...
