June 5th 1984 a house had to be pulled down and guess what?

In the old cellar a TREASURE was found....it had been hidden there for centuries....

The house was at AN DER OVERTRAVE 16 in the city centre and the TREASURE had been there for over 450 years.....

Over 24.000 coins (gold and silver) were found....green from being in the ground for so long but after cleaning shiny gold and silver.

It took years before it was clear WHO was the owner if this GREAT FIND, but in 1988 it was clear that the person who found it got half of it.

The piece of ground where the coins had been found and also the share the finder got came in possession of the country.

Nowadays there is a lovely exhibition and we can enjoy it and get to know particulars of the life of a MERCHANT, the way money was spent and kept and more....

By now you will be wanting to visit DER GROSSE LüBECKER MüNZSCHATZ and I would say: do so......afterwards you will e.g. know HOW MANY skins of squirrels WILL GO INTO A 1300 LITER BARREL and more interesting things.....

A real TREASURE.....
