Neustadt, Germany

Neustadt in Holstein is a small port in the district of Ostholstein, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. It lies on the north side of Lubeck Bay (Baltic Sea), approx. 30 km northeast of Lübeck, and 50 km southeast of Kiel.

There are few things to see and do in Neustadt itself, however nearby Lubeck is worth a visit. UNESCO declared the existing Lubeck cityscape to be a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1987. The water-enclosed Old Town with its roughly 1,800 listed buildings, historical alleyways and criss-crossed lanes is not, however, just pretty to the eye, but is also the hub of an extremely lively, major city with roughly 214,000 inhabitants.
