Se hva du kan gjøre og oppleve i Lübeck

Lübeck, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1987, was one of the great mercantile cities in the Middle Ages. The Old Town island, surrounded by the river Trave and the canal, today still communicates the charm of a port. Travemünde is one of the most beautiful sea resorts of Europe which already in 1802 transformed the former fishing- and sailor village into a top address for bathers from near and far. The fascinating sailing Old-timer “Passat”, chugging deep-sea fishing boats and gigantic ferryboats can be admired on the Baltic Sea.

The Liebesbrücke, which can be translated to lovebridge, is a pedestrian bridge that crosses the River Trave from the Wallstraße to the Old Town. This bridge is a very popular place to visit for those, who are in love. They bring a padlock with their initials written on it with them and hang it onto the brigde, while throwing the key into the river, to seal their endless love.

If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life, the Krähenteich, located on the Old Town's island, is the place to go.

Once you have passed the bars and restaurants of the Obertrave, you will think you've entered a different world and if there wouldn't be some cars parking on the side of the cobbled roads, one could get the impression of being in a different century. Lovely little colourful houses, only seperated from the River Trave by a small road and a strip of grass, beautiful courtyards and their residents simply enjoying life can be seen when you walk along the Obertrave, just onto Lübecks cathedral.
Adresse: An der Obertrave, Lübeck

Brodten Steep Coast

From a paradise for beach pirates to a haven for sand martins – the Brodten steep coast with its strange cliff formations is a fantastic place for long walks. In the Middle Ages, beach pirates would light beacons to lure ships onto the sand banks just off the coast and would then plunder them. Thankfully, these bleak times are long gone, In the 19th century, increasing numbers of summer visitors to the up-and-coming resort of Travemünde “discovered” the perfect excursion destination: the Hermannshöhe with its Seetempel gazebo. The striated, sometimes towering cliffs of the Brodten steep coast stretch for 4 km. The whole area is known as the Brodtener Winkel and is a protected conservation area. The Baltic Sea created the cliffs over the centuries – and the sea and wind still “nibble” away at the Brodten steep coast today. Up to a metre a year is eroded by the sea and washed up a couple of 100 m further down on the beaches of Travemünde or Priwall. A bluff (“active cliff”) occurs when the sea has free rein. It is directly exposed to the might of the waves and is used as a breeding ground by the rare sand martins, which nest in holes in the cliff face. Towards Niendorf the southern part of the cliff becomes a “passive cliff” – the erosion here has largely ceased and the former steep cliff edge has been “reconquered” by thick vegetation.
Adresse: Brodtener Steilufer, Travemünde
Transport: by bus from Lübeck or Travemünde

Courtyards and Alleyways

Just like other big cities of the late Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times,Lübeck had a great number of daytellers and delivery boys. They chiefly lived in little houses called “Buden” (shacks), which were densly crowded on premises in street corners, at the back of townsmen’s houses and in the inner parts of housing blocks. Those hidden parts were called alleyways and alleyway quarter. Quickly the salesman, richer middle class and church men discovered how much there was to earn with a well emballished courtyard. Of course the trade with these little housing alleys and exorbitant rates prospered widely. Therein it was up to the owner how many families he cramped into the tiny flats and how many buildings he erected behind his own house. With the general growth of population during the second half of the 15th century Lübeck’s population increased by 25%. This led to a pauperisation of a big part of the population and with it to an extended and modernised quarter of alleyways. Towards the end of the 17th century Lübeck had more then 180 alleyways. Today about 90 of them have survived. A few of the most popular ones are presented here: Engelsgrube (Angel’s path) – Where the English were called Angels Hellgrüner und dunkelgrüner Gang – A green paradise in the backstreets Lüngreens Gang ( Fischergrube No. 38) – submerging in the labyrinth of alleys

Lübeck Town Hall

Lübeck Town Hall is one of the most beautiful town halls in Germany. In 1230 its construction started right in the centre of the Old Town on the market.

The patricians extended the building several times, adding the magnificent freestone facade, the decorative balcony and the three towers, known locally as the“giants”.

St. Jacob's church is easy to recognise from a distance as it has four spherical globes on the tower's helm edge. The three-naved Gothic brick hall church (built in 1334) has been the church of seafarers since the Middle Ages. It was consecrated together with St. Mary's and St. Peter's. Since the church did not suffer any damage during the 2nd World War, the boxed pew and historic organ are still intact. The small "Stellwagen organ" is one of the best preserved examples of North German organs from the 16th century. A lifeboat commemorates the sinking of the four-masted barque "Pamir" in 1957. It is located in the north tower chapel and represents the "National Memorial for Civilian Shipping" today.

Hüxstraße and Fleischhauerstraße

Hüxstraße and Fleischhauerstraße in the heart of the city provide an enchanting mix of small and up-market shops with a great deal of Olde Worlde charm. By turning into the so-called "rib streets" away from the hustle and bustle of Breite Straße, you will enter into the narrow brick world of old Lübeck and will find many treasures within the winding lanes. Fleischhauerstraße and "Hüx" - as it is called by the locals - are two good examples of how an extremely vibrant shopping culture all of its own can develop away from the classic boulevards. The traders are often in listed buildings and know exactly how to use the limited space to display their wares without losing the historical atmosphere. There is a higher-than-average number of owner-run shops which means that many purchases earn the "typically Lübeck" title which makes them a great gift for yourself or your loved ones.
Adresse: Hüxstraße/Fleischhauerstraße, Lübeck


Königstraße lies parallel to the pedestrian area of Breite Straße. Culture meets trade here and modern hustle and bustle meets historic façades. Shopping, suppliers replenishing stocks mingled with busy Lübeckers on the way to their next appointment - it all goes on here. When you shop here, you are right in the thick of true Lübeck everyday life. Mühlenstraße and Koberg are connected by the long shopping mile but it also has many other different guises. Real treasure troves such as Boutique Geoffreys, the furniture shop Gunilla or the goldsmiths "das kleine kra" sit like small pearls dotted along a chain of everyday use. But differences exist here too. Even if you're just really looking for a nice birthday card, you'll often end up in the in-house gallery at Hünicke again, or looking for a few new towels in Betten Struve with its spacious and light-filled premises. It all can turn into a relaxing time-out away from the bustling crowded streets. A real Must for any Lübecker is a quick detour into Buchhaus Hugendubel. You'll find that the contents of many a Lübecker's entire living room bookcase - spanning pre-school reading to the first romantic novel up to current political biographies - all came from here. If from here you go towards Koberg, you will be getting closer to some of the top artistic addresses in Königstraße. One of these is the Löwen Apotheke with its listed façade and magical conversions in its interior. But it is in the Kunsthaus Lübeck with selected works of Classical Modern and contemporary art where it all really comes together. And when strolling through the exhibitions in the Behnhouse diagonally opposite, you can quite well imagine how a time-honoured Lübeck merchant must have felt in his own home. After so many impressions, a little light refreshment sounds good. Pop into one of the small side streets such as Pfaffenstraße or Glockengießerstraße for this. You'll find the the Günter Grass-House there too, by the way, as well as the restaurant Blechtrommel - two of Lübeck's finest Old Town tips!
Adresse: Königsstraße, Lübeck

Breite Straße

There's no way fashion victims and shopping friends can get round it: The Breite Straße in Lübeck is only accessible to pedestrians and is a welcome spot for bargain hunters with its broad pavements and great variety of shops. Famous brands such as Esprit, Gerry Weber, Hallhuber and Street One are all in close proximity to the shopping Mecca of Karstadt and also the popular TKMaxx outlet store. The most widely used "gateway" to the Breite Straße is "Kohlmarkt". The Haerder Center is a shopping mall with many trendy labels and stores, for example the only Pandora store in Lübeck. The center is located along with the traditional shoe shop Schümann which offers shoes for the entire family over its three floors. Of course, there are also jewellers and perfume shops. And the parent company of the most famous Lübeck delicacy is located here: Café Niederegger, the birthplace of marzipan. With so much choice, carrier bags often tend to become rather heavy. Perfect for taking a quick break. Relax with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake in the heart of the pedestrian area and enjoy a bit of people-watching, too. Traditional restaurants such as the Seafarer's Guild are great for a longer time-out or look out for a sunny spot in the square with an exclusive view of the historic Town Hall.
Adresse: Breite Straße, Lübeck

The tradition of Lübeck as a wine trading town goes back to the 14th century. At that time, the great need for salt to preserve herring created a lively trade between Lübeck and the Bay of Biscay coast. Initially, barrels of red Bordeaux wine were loaded from the salt ships as a side load. These wines were given the popular name "Rotspon"; and quickly gained great popularity. The circle of customers of the Lübeck wine trade extended from northern Germany along the Baltic coast to the Baltic states and Finland. The designation "Lübecker Rotspon"; applies to red wines of French origin which are brought loosely to Lübeck and bottled according to old tradition.
