Remains as a reminder of the once incredibly powerful Hanseatic League, as a founding city, where the most important buildings were built around the market square. It is kind of all there, but you have to look through all the rubbish of architecture and structures...More

A walk in the old town of Lübeck takes you back to the Middle Ages with its wonderful architecture and quaint eateries. They sing about one night in Bangkok, but a day in Lübeck is a must when in Germany.

Lübeck old town is very compact. Thete are some beautiful churches, shops and other buildings. Highlight for us was the old narrow alley ways. Well worth an afternoon or two. Many good beer placs, winebars and eating places.

Lubeck was one of the Hanseatic trading cities, and grew rich as a result. The old town was largely spared during the war and it has a number of beautiful buildings dating from the Middle Ages. Well worth a visit

I’ve always wanted to see this town with my own eyes. It was everything I ever imagined it to be. Historical, beautiful, colourful and full of life. Spring and Autumn are great seasons to visit. Summers are good too but it can get quite hot....More

Totally walkable. Turn left, keep going and you will see the bridge and the two tubby towers. Pick up a map at the information centre on the right before the towers.

Hi, Yes, the streets are walkable using a walker with wheels. There may be areas of cobble stones but there are more smooth streets than not. It is a great city to visit and check out the marzipan store to look at all the... More
