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 LÃ¼beck, 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.
