Citywalking in Lübeck

Overview

Quote:
Large parts of the Old Town have been designated a World Heritage site by the United Nations. And rightly so, it's definitely worth spending some of your time in Lübeck.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Lübeck is easily reached by car. The A1 from Hamburg to Oldenburg (Holstein) runs right past Lübeck. Lübeck Central Station has direct train connections with Hamburg, Berlin, Kiel, Magdeburg and Copenhagen (Denmark).

The Old Town is best experienced on foot. The streets are small and often one-way, and parking is limited.

Baltic Hotel

Hotel

Quote:
The Hotel Baltic is a simple but decent enough hotel. It is also very conveniently located, within walking distance of the railway station as well as the Old Town. Parking can be a bit difficult but if you tell them beforehand you come by car, you should have no trouble.

Theaterklause

Restaurant

Quote:
We dined at the Theaterklause to celebrate my birthday. We arrived fairly early on a Saturday evening, which was fortunate, for soon after the restaurant filled to capacity.

The menus were extensive, the food hot (as in warm), plentiful and delicious. Add a friendly waitress, a cozy and relaxed ambience and reasonable prices and what you have is the perfect dinner spot.

Story/Tip

Quote:
Usually, the best way to explore any city is on foot. Lübeck is certainly no exception to the rule. The city has a rich history and parts are not accessible by car at all.

The tourist agency for Lübeck lists two city walks on their website (http://www.luebeck-tourism.de/, go to Info Lübeck, then click Sights) that will take you past several of the highlights.

Lübeck is most famous for its seven church towers that characterize the skyline since the Middle Ages. But the city defense works and the city hall are also sights not to be missed.
