Lubeck-Travemunde 2
Fall in love with history

Lübeck was one of the most important medieval Hanseatic cities. With its 5 splendid gothic churches and more than 80 hidden alleys, the spirit of the Hanse is still tangible in the Old Town, which is completely surrounded by water. As a UNESCO World Cultural heritage the Old Town is a great place to take a stroll, to visit the historic sites, the European Hansemuseum, one of the 3 Nobel Prize Laureates’ houses dedicated to Willy Brandt, Thomas Mann and Günter Grass. An absolute must is a pause at Café Niederegger, where you can try the famous marzipan from Lübeck, watch live-size figures made from marzipan and buy some for your loved ones at home.
