Holidays to Lübeck

Narrow alleyways, historic buildings, salty air, proud sailing vessels, marzipan and maritime stories –Lübeck is unique and wonderful. This is why UNESCO declared the existing cityscape to be a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1987.

The water-enclosed Old Town with its roughly 1,800 listed buildings, historical alleyways and criss-crossed lanes is not, however, just pretty to the eye, but is also the hub of an extremely lively, major city. In medieval times, Lübeck was considered to be an important city and owes its thanks to the success of the Lübeck merchants. Holsten Gate became the proud symbol of Lübeck as a free imperial city. Holsten Gate is one of the most famous sights in Lübeck. When visiting the City of the 7 Spires take a moment to admire its symbol standing at the entrance to the old town.
