International Hanseatic Day celebrates both the prosperous past and the exciting future opportunities that lie in the trading and cultural links between the towns and cities that make up the Hanseatic League.
Boston rejoined the Hanseatic League in 2015, after a 700-year absence. Boston was a warehousing site and trading partner with Hanseatic League countries in medieval times and owed much of its early prosperity to the trade it enjoyed from across the North Sea.
It joined towns and cities including King’s Lynn, Kingston upon Hull, Aberdeen and other members from Belarus, Belgium, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden in the Die Hanse, the modern-day Hanseatic League.
