Full description

Take a short train journey from Hamburg to enjoy a day trip and guided walking tour in Lübeck. Stroll down the charming alleys of Lübeck’s Old Town, admire the local red brick buildings and see Holsten Gate, St. Mary's Church, and Lübeck Cathedral. Choose between two options depending on your needs. If you choose the fully-guided option, meet your guide at the Hamburg Central Station and travel together to Lübeck and back. If you prefer to travel to Lübeck alone, enjoy a car transfer from your accommodation in Hamburg to Hamburg Central Station. Meet a local Lübeck guide once you arrive in the city. Begin your walking tour of Lübeck at the Holsten Gate, a fascinating brick gothic building that was originally part of the city walls. Head inside to visit the Holstentor Museum, the city's history museum, and see antique ship models, suits of armor, and weapons from Lübeck.

Continue the tour with a stroll through the narrow medieval streets of the Old Town and marvel at the fantastic examples of medieval brick design. Walk past St Peter’s Church, the majestic Lübeck Cathedral, and the St Aegidien Church.

Head towards the stunning Gothic-style market square to see the City Hall. Throughout the tour, learn about Lübeck’s traders, merchants, and commerce throughout history. Next, visit the elegant gothic Church of St Mary. Inside, don't forget to look up to see the gravity-defying high ceiling, a spectacular wall clock, and a bell that fell from the tower and hit the floor. After leaving the church, head past St Catherine's Church and St Jacob Church.

Learn about the precursor of modern hospitals, Heiligen-Geist-Hospital, as you walk by before going to the harbor. Marvel at the over 20 historic ships on display and cross the Drehbrücke bridge. Your last stop on the tour is a walk past the lovely Church of St Lawrence.

If you chose the fully-guided option, enjoy some free time to explore Lübeck on your own and have lunch in town. If you chose the car transfer option, follow your guide back to the Lübeck station and board your train to Hamburg.
