The European Hansemuseum in Lübeck in Germany is the largest museum in Europe dedicated to the history of the Hanse. It is situated in the north of the old town of Lübeck, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The museum includes a modern museum, an integrated archaeological dig and the Castle Friary, an important Lübeck monument, as well as grounds open to the public with information about the many historical traces. The museum complex with the new museum building and the historical buildings makes a confident statement in its urban context and forms a link between the past and the present.

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2015

With the Europäisches Hansemuseum, contemporary architecture has been added to Lübeck’s historical quarter – which is a UNESCO World Heritage site – while maintaining the scale used in the quarter. The treatment of the historical facade typologies is very successful and the materiality is very elaborated and can be felt in each detail. The way the museum concept is translated into specific spatial sequences and moods is excellent and captivates the visitor. Great work.
