Full description
Meet your guide at the Holsten Gate then head out onto the streets of Lübeck for your private, guided tour. Appointed as a UNESCO World Heritage Listed Site, the city is renowned for its Gothic brick architecture and centuries-old buildings. Stroll through the narrow streets, past romantic houses, and local craft stalls as you discover the beautiful old town of Lübeck. Admire the typical architecture of this Hanseatic city displayed through the array of house signs and gables. Follow your guide through small courtyards, alleyways, secluded spots, and low passages, listening to fascinating insight into the living conditions of the citizens along the way. Learn about the historical ‘angel pit’, and why it has nothing to do with so-called heavenly messengers, and discover what’s so special about the street lamps in the city. Finally, stroll past the pilgrim church of St. Jakobi before ending the tour at Heiligen-Geist-Hospital to admire its striking little turrets.

Unser Führer, Herr Thurau, war sehr entgegenkommend und zugewandt. Sein Wissen über Lübeck hat er kurzweilig und witzig mit uns geteilt. In hohem Maß empfehlenswert
