Important Historical Places

  • Hanseatic League
    The Hanseatic league, also known by the German word Hansa meaning a guild or company, began in 1358. The Hansa was an alliance of trading cities that established and maintained a trade monopoly along the coast of Northern Europe, from the Baltic to the North Sea, during the Late Middle Ages and Early modern period.
  • Hanseatic League City, Lübeck
    Lübeck was the center of Hanse for hundreds of years, and is one the three remaining Hanseatic League cities.
  • Dresden Frauenkirche
    Frauenkirche Dresden can look back on a 1000 year history. Its predecessor churches were dedicated to the Mother of God and called Frauenkirche. In the 18th century, the famous dome structure designed by George Bähr, was built and has dominated Dresden's cityscape for 200 years. The church was destroyed shortly before before the end of World War II, on Valentine's Day. It's ruin remained as a war memotial in the heart of Dresden.
    In total, 60 years went by before the Frauenkirche in all its baroque beauty could reopen its doors to the world. On October 30th 2005, the celebratory consecration took place to mark the conclusion of the church's reconstruction.
