What people are saying about Lübeck

Our guide, Axel Schattschneider, has really well-founded and comprehensive knowledge of the history, culture, architecture and social development of the city of Lübeck over the course of history. He imparts this knowledge in an understandable, vivid and entertaining way. He was a pleasure to listen to and there was never a dull moment throughout the tour. We learned a lot on this tour and got impressions of Lübeck that we would never have experienced otherwise. Axel was just great.

Nice trip with the family, we will definitely do it next time we come to Lübeck. The staff were nice and accommodating. We had booked a trip, but were allowed to get on an earlier one. We were not aware that you could only pay for drinks in cash. It was a shame, because it would have been even better if you could have enjoyed a beer/soda at the same time. I would have liked that when booking, you also order and pay for drinks for the trip.

A nice boat trip to get to know Lübeck a little better than just the old town. You get a good overview.

Great event, not too difficult, but not boring either. was fun

Nice sailing trip, got to see and hear a lot about Lübeck.
