Medieval Courtyards of Lübeck

In Lübeck, Germany, the air is cooler where it flows from narrow alleyways that run perpendicular to the city street of Engelsgrube in Old Town. The small alleys are a result of medieval urban sprawl, where traders and the population burst out into little courtyards built up in the backyards of the main buildings.

Each alley leads into living areas of tall stone, dollhouse like structures that surround a shared courtyard of approx. 4 ft wide by 75 ft long. Some are wider.
