Sights Lübeck

Lübeck, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1987, was one of the great mercantile cities in the Middle Ages. Nowadays it offers what guests search for: a town small enough to be diverting, history to learn and a seaside for relaxing hours.

The first impression is of soothing harmony. The width of the streets, the height of the roofs, and the length of time it takes to stroll across the market place have the right proportion. Since the 13th century the “city of seven spires” has been depicted with the same skyline of green-clad belfries rising above the red-tiled roofs. 

Lübeck’s characteristic feature is water. The Old Town island, surrounded by the river Trave and the canal, today still communicates the charm and cosmopolitan approach of a port.
