Lübeck is a richly-filled treasure box with a variety of Hanseatic art and culture – right in front of our castle gate. Discover everywhere the perceptible historical experience: in the European Hanseatic Museum, which makes the size of the mother of the Hanseatic League noticeable and brings you back to the glorious, adventurous times of Lübeck merchants of the sea. Or walk in the footsteps of the great Mann brothers. Discover how from fiction becomes living history in the “Buddenbrook House”, the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Thomas Mann. Walk along the Trave river along the pretty venerable merchant houses or let different city guides show hidden treasures of Lübeck.
If you do not prefer all that romantic, be assured that even when shopping – the Hüxstrasse is very recommendable – nobody can escape the magic of the city.
Who likes to have a fresh breeze blowing around the nose, we recommend a visit to Germany’s oldest seaside resort Travemünde, that we Lübecker also like to call our “prettiest daughter”. Through the toll-tunnel “Herrentunnel” you are by car in about 20 minutes directly at the seaside, where the Trave flows into the Baltic Sea. However, the way to Travemünde is more beautiful over water. With the MS Hanse you will reach in 1.5 hours comfortably the seaside resort and get to know Lübeck from an entirely special side: there is everything, from bustling harbor life to enchanting small fishing villages.
In the Lübeck program both of these things should in no way be missing: Lübecker marzipan and the popular Rotspon!
