The Holsten Gate houses the Museum of City History behind its walls, which are up to 3.5 metres thick. In 2003, the building was modernised and a new exhibition was launched under the title: "The Power of Trade". The exhibition comprises seven themed areas with different installations. The themed areas highlight, for example, Europe-wide foreign trade during the time of the Hanseatic League. It’s not surprising that the armament of Holsten Gate is also featured since, as part of the fortifications, it was also used to defend the city. The city gate has never been attacked in its history.
