The Holstenstraße (1290: Latin Platea Holsatorum ) in the Marien Quartier in Lübeck is today an important shopping street in the old town, which leads from the Kohlmarkt down the old town hill to the Trave and over the Holsten Bridge to the Holsten Gate and the salt reservoirs .

But Holstenstrasse was not always an important access road to “City”. A view from the Holsten Gate into the street at the end of the 19th century was, as Pagodienstraße or Kleine Petersgrube are still today , narrow and strange. When the Kaiser , coming from the regatta days in Travemünde, visited Lübeck “privately” in August 1898, Mayor Klug took him to the town hall via Braunstraße .

As a shopping street and the main axis of public transport, Holstenstraße is one of the most important modes of transport in Lübeck's old town and its main aisle from the west from the main station towards the market and pedestrian zone . It was severely affected by the air raid on Lübeck on March 29, 1942 , with the historic merchant quarter to the north and Mengstrasse and the absolute center around the market . No. 35 was the only building under monument protection that remained as an Art Nouveau building . Fritz Fey Jr.'s Theaterfigurenmuseum Lübeck is located on Kolk side street . below the Petrikirche , which can be reached from Holstenstraße via Petristegel , a staircase between the houses, or via Schmiedestraße .

In the continuation over the Kohlmarkt and the Wahmstraße / Krähenstraße it forms the only east-west axis for the public transport of the city ​​traffic in the old town of Lübeck.
