About us / Im alten Zolln

W elcome to Im alten Zolln, the traditional pub on the historic central island of Luebeck. As a historic institution since 1589 we are the oldest existing pub in Luebeck. Between Semperoper and classic caricatures, meet people in our historical interior. We are a meeting place, a patron of musical events, friends of the german card game “Doppelkopf” and a home for literature. We sing, laugh, make music and most importantly chat.

The history of Im alten Zolln

Im alten Zolln Lübeck - history

1552 The old construction of the Muehlengate

In the beginning the tollkeeper lived in the gate from the 16th century on forward. The inner Muehlengate was still there during that time, visible in the picture. The first recorded mentioning of the Zolln was written 1589 in the Niederstadtbuch, an ancient collection of records from the various arms of the system of law in Luebeck. It was mentioned under the name “De olde Tollbude”.

1858 Neighbourhood of the inner Muehlengate

Today the Muehlenstreet looks entirely different. The Zolln is the last remaining building of the big Muehlenconstruction with several huge gates, which were removed in 1861. It reminds us of the golden age of Luebeck; the former queen of the Hanseatic League. If you look closely you can see the Zolln hiding in the left corner behind the trees.

Im alten Zolln Lübeck - history

From 1903 to now

Im alten Zolln is still a social staple. Newcomers and natives alike develop interesting topics over a delicious beer. Even without beer the mood is always lively. Hence, the Zolln has never become something new, neither inside nor outside. Instead it continues to be a melting pot of intellectuality and culture. It has always been more than just an ordinary pub. We are a part of living history, continuing the tradition started so many years ago.
