WHAT IS THE HANSEATIC LEAGUE?

HANSA-PARK has gradually been building a huge theme world keyed to the topic “HANSEATIC LEAGUE in EUROPE”. In the history of of the League on their website, they say: “The historical Hanseatic League’s last council meeting, or Hanseatic Diet, took place in Lübeck in 1669.” (Hansa Park)

In 1980, former Hanseatic League members established a new “Hansa.” This league is open to all former Hanseatic League members and cities that once hosted a Hanseatic kontor. The headquarters of the new Hansa is in Lübeck, Germany. Die Hanse (in English)

Kris wrote down “The Cities” then some illegible stuff. He lost $3,000 and finished with $2,200.

Frédérique got it right and bet $7,300. She finished with $15,100.

Julia also got it right and bet $7,605 so she won the game with $15,605.
