Baltic & North Sea Northern Germany Photos
A series of former Hanseatic League towns and ports define the northern section of Germany on the North & Baltic Seas. The Hanseatic league stretching from the Netherlands to the Baltic States with some Scandinavian ports was formed in 1356 to protect their trade from piracy. This interaction caused the formation of a culture and architecture which differs from southern parts of Germany. For example, buildings are mostly of brick.
