Culture at the door
The hotel “Lübecker Krönchen” located at the foot of the old town island, and a rich treasure chest of touristic attractions and culture is within reach. Lübeck was always unique, Queen of the Hanseatic League for 500 years and today the gateway to the Baltic Sea and the world. Tradition and progress are not opposites in Lübeck, but they form the contrast, which makes this city so unique. Medieval ambience and modern shops. Organ concerts in the five large city churches and music events in the Music and Congress Hall. Everything is close at hand in Lübeck.
Lübeck is not only part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage –visitors meet culture at almost every corner: If you want to visit all the museums, you should plan for a few days, so extensive is the offer: From contemporary art over to Lübeck housing culture up to medieval finds from the underground of the Hanseatic City. And of course, the Holstentor famous in all over the world: It shows Lübeck history and exhibitions. But also no one should miss the Buddenbrookhaus. Here one finds the Lübeck born writers Heinrich and Thomas Mann. They stand in a row with other famous Lübecker like the composer Dietrich Buxtehude, the sculptor Bernt Notke, the Nobel Peace Prize winner Willy Brandt (Willy-Brandt-Haus in the Königsstrasse), the writer Erich Mühsam and the Nobel Prize winner Günter Grass (Günter Grass House at the Glockengießergasse).
In addition to the museums the varied program plans of the private or municipal theater stages, the puppet theatre, or the open-air theater in the historic ramparts near Lübeck’s old town bear witness to the vibrant theatre life in the Hanseatic City.
