Lübeck old town is very picturesque and a prime example of nordic brick gothic architecture. Despite its beauty it’s not too crowded and Lübeckers succeed in preserving a certain elegance.

Unfortunately Lubeck old town was destroyed after WWII. Now you can have very pleasant walk in the historic center. Many buildings are carefully restored and re-built.

We had an excellent guide who walked us around the old town in freezing temperatures. The history of Lubeck is very interesting and some of the buildings which remain after the war are very beautiful.

Visited the old town on a day trip from Hamburg (about 40 minutes on the train). Highly recommended ... really beautiful Hanseatic town with added poignancy given much of it has been painstakingly restores after WWII. Amazing Dutch gabled buildings and sympathetic modern additions. Great...More
