This tower, or should I say these towers?, is the best known CITY TOWER dating from the LATE MIDDLE AGES.
The tower was rebuilt in the 15th Century and there are two inscriptions: CONCORDIA DOMI FORIS PAX, which means: Eintracht im Hause und Frieden vor der Toren(HARMONY WITHIN, PEACE WITHOUT) and the second inscription is: "S.P.Q.L." which means: Senatus Polulusque Lubecensis, der Senat und das Volk von Lübeck..
To my surprise I could enter the tower which houses a lovely, interesting museum on Lübeck's History and the symbol of Lübeck, the Tower itself.
Although traffic goes on and of along this place: don't walk on, but walk THROUGH the tower and you will enter a lovely and quiet park at the end of which 2 gigantic bronze lions are sitting on the grass, like guardians of the city!
In the photo the tower as I saw it from the top of the St. PETRI CHURCH where I climbed the tower.....
