Europäisches Hansemuseum Lübeck

(c) Stefan Dendorfer

As a young museum in a traditional location, the EHM merges the old castle monastery with a modern museum complex. This is the first address for Hanse history worldwide since 27 May 2015. As a pioneer of our modern understanding of economics, the Hanse still shapes the politics, economy and society of the European continent. In cooperation with the ‘Research Centre for the History of the Hanse and the Baltic Sea Region’ we make the latest findings of Hanse research accessible. As an economic museum, the museum also deals with current issues of trade and economy. With our excellent gastronomy and plenty of space for events, the EHM is an ideal place to reflect on the future and the past. You can not only understand the present here, but also enjoy it.


The EHM is the first German member of Museums For Future and thus contributes to a liveable future for all.
As a member of Museums For Future, we are committed to the four goals of the MFF Declaration:
- We support scientists and the climate movement in their demands for compliance with the Paris Climate Agreement (1.5°C limit).
- We communicate the topics of climate protection and sustainability in our museum in the form of projects and actions.
- We are taking active steps to become climate neutral by 2040.
- We publicly acknowledge the urgency of climate protection and sustainability in relation to museums and communicate this through our networks.
Specifically, for example, we are currently working on a sustainable mobility concept as well as more resource-efficient procurement and museum technology. We are also putting our energy consumption to the test in order to identify potential savings for more climate protection.
