European Hansemuseum


European history comes alive in the Hansemuseum.

The time of the Hanseatic League is considered one of the most significant chapters in German and European history. The museum creates an impressive blend of dioramas, original artefacts and interactive elements to convey a fascinating image of 500 eventful years. The modern new museum building with a roof terrace, interior courtyard and old church square offers the perfect complement to the historical Castle Monastery which is integrated with the building complex and blends harmoniously into today’s cityscape.
