Willy-Brandt-House Lübeck

Dramatic staging and multimedia services are used which allow visitors to gain a much better understanding of the German history of the 20th century. The permanent exhibition of the German Federal Chancellor Willy Brandt Foundation shows photos from all stages of the famous politician's life. Official documents, which include the letter to John F. Kennedy written immediately after the Berlin Wall was built, and the manuscript of the government declaration from 1969 with the famous slogan "let's dare more democracy", are just as much part of the exhibition as Brandt's school leaving certificate or a letter to Nora, his daughter living in Norway. Interview transcripts and newsreels show the public appearance of Willy Brandt from his time as mayor in Berlin up to his resignation as German Federal Chancellor.

Do & See

Tucked away behind the tall, steep-roofed and closely-packed houses built by prosperous merchants, lie tiny workers’ cottages in a thread of narrow passageways. Meander among the ‘roses round the door’ almshouses of Glockengießerstraße, and behind the An der Obertrave quay, to discover hidden oases of pretty streets and enchanting courtyards. Cross bridges or take a river cruise for endless eye-catching views.
