What we will do
  • We leave the port by coach and head to the Hanseatic city of Lübeck, where we can discover the fascinating historic centre that was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1987.
  • Our tour will take us through the historic alleyways and courtyards that bore witness to the economic splendour that the Hanseatic League enjoyed in the 19th century.
  • Our guided tour brings us face to face with the Holstentor, the most famous of the five gates that belong to the medieval city fortifications. We can also spot the seven spires – belonging to five large churches – which characterise the city's skyline. Then we will head on to the Hospital of the Holy Spirit – founded by the city's rich merchants in around 1280 – and see the Town Hall and St. Mary's Church, which is home to the biggest mechanical organ in the world.
  • A must for any tourist in Lübeck is the Buddenbrook house, the former residence of brothers Heinrich and Thomas Mann who were born in the Hanseatic city itself.
  • The guided tour will end at the Coffeehouse in the historic Niederegger bakery, where we can sit down and enjoy a special cup of coffee accompanied by a – strictly handmade – marzipan cake.
  • After we will have plenty of free time to explore Lübeck's picturesque stone streets and a variety of refined, sophisticated shops before heading back to Hamburg airport.
