Its legacy lives on in a number of Dutch and German cities calling themselves "Hanseatic" (including the [[UsefulNotes/TheSixteenLandsOfDeutschland German states]] of Bremen and UsefulNotes/{{Hamburg}}, which have the official title of "Free Hanseatic City" and "Free and Hanseatic City" respectively). There is also the New Hanse, a voluntary association of cities that began in 1980.

1980. Membership in the New Hanse is open not only to former members of the old Hanse but also to former "kontore" (major trading partners) of the Hanse, with Novgorod being the largest of the kontore to join.

Topping out about at 100 cities in the 14th century, the League gradually declined as its lack of central government (partly to avoid legal problems against a single entity) caused a problem against competition from Scandinavian merchants and the Dutch. This only got worse when the Reformation broke out and shattered the tenuous unity amongst the members. Once America was opened up and thus trade across the Atlantic grew more important than trade across the Baltic the league became an anarchronism, and the death knell was sounded with the outbreak of the ThirtyYearsWar if not UsefulNotes/TheEightyYearsWar. For decades all of Northern Germany became the rope of a brutal tug of tug of war, and the Hanse members were no different. Caught between the Hanse's traditional Dutch, Scandinavian, and British trade rivals on one side and a Habsburg Empire trying to subjugate all the German states on the other, the rich but protectionist, divided, and weak Hansa became TheChewToy of countless armies and mercenaries while its' members split to one side or the other.

The league outlasted the war and managed to limp on for a few more years, but the last diet was held in 1669 and barely anybody showed up for the funeral. In 1862 somebody in what was then the budding GermanEmpire noticed the casket hadn't been buried and formally dissolved the dead league.

* There's an AmusementPark near Sierksdorf north of Lübeck named Hansa-Park (originally Hansaland). Over the last years, it added more and more HanseaticLeague-themed attractions.

* The ''Brave New World'' expansion to VideoGame/{{Civilization}} added the Hanse as a unique building for the German civilization, replacing the normal bank building and granting bonus production to trade routes between the city and city-states.

* Preictably, is mentioned in ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'', though as the League is fading by then and the USE becomes the major military and economic power, it doesn't play much of a role.
