Known as the "Queen of the Hanseatic League," Lübeck was once a powerful trading center and a member of the influential trade alliance in the Middle Ages. The well-preserved medieval buildings and UNESCO World Heritage status make the city on the Baltic Sea a popular destination for history and architecture enthusiasts.
One of the most famous sights of the northern German city is the Holsten Gate, a magnificent brick city gate built in the 15th century. As you stroll through the narrow streets of the Old Town, you can admire other historic buildings such as the impressive St. Mary's Church (Marienkirche) with its astronomical clock.
You can experience even more culture in the numerous museums, art galleries and theaters. For example, in the Buddenbrookhaus you can immerse yourself in the life and work of the German author Thomas Mann, who was born in Lübeck. The Lübeck Theater presents a diverse program of opera, ballet and theater performances.
Lübeck is also world-famous as the marzipan city. According to legend, this sweet was invented here in the Middle Ages. A visit to the museum of the traditional marzipan manufacturer Niederegger is worthwhile - you will learn everything about the history and production of this delicacy and can purchase sweet souvenirs for yourself and your loved ones.
The Hanseatic city is located directly on the water, which contributes to its special charm. Enjoy the picturesque scenery while walking along the banks of the Trave River. You can also make a boat tour to take in Lübeck's skyline from the water or explore nearby Travemünde - a charming seaside resort with sandy beaches and a historic lighthouse.
