Holstein is Germany’s northernmost state. The southern city of Lübeck is known for the Holstentor, a red-brick city gate from the 1400s, and the rebuilt Gothic-style Lübeck Cathedral. Its central Marienkirche, a 13th–14th-century church, is a landmark of northern European church design. Farther north, near the city of Kiel, the Laboe Naval Memorial is dedicated to the fallen soldiers of WWI and WWII.
