So much to do and see. The old town and towers are stunning. The shopping is excellent, as are the restaurants. Of special note is Niederackers, famous for marzipan and some of the best cake I've ever had.

We visited Lubec and really enjoyed all the different old buildings as we walked around the old town. It is a really interesting place to visit and well worth spending time there.

The Holsten tor is beautiful although it looks like it may be sinking. Several other old buildings in the old town which were really interesting. Enjoyed the pedestrian area too. A short visit but enjoyable.

One must see Lübeck, to appreciate the old European architecture. So many beautiful houses and churches, with great history. Lloyds of little cafes to enjoy marzipan. For any marzipan lover, Lübeck ous the place.

We started with a walking tour of the Old Town. Medieval buildings, lots of churches, narrow streets, cobbles, a market place... stunning and packed with tourists on a hot Saturday afternoon. The coffee and marzipan (the town speciality) break was very welcome. We then boarded...More

This World Heritage location certainly merits its designation. It is full of wonderful buildings (although many rebuilt post war)

Lubeck has lots of very old buildings lovingly restored and updated to keep them in current use. There are some museums but the ones I tried only had German commentary, and I only speak English. The gardens and walks around the moat are lovely.

We caught a handball tournament in the square so it was extra festive in July during the World Cup! When there are events or music in the square it’s a great place to stop and watch while surrounded by historic architecture.

The old centre of the town, which used to and I imagine still does have a market. We had coffees and teas at one of the many restaurants in the square, and very nice too.

Totally walkable. Turn left, keep going and you will see the bridge and the two tubby towers. Pick up a map at the information centre on the right before the towers.

Hi, Yes, the streets are walkable using a walker with wheels. There may be areas of cobble stones but there are more smooth streets than not. It is a great city to visit and check out the marzipan store to look at all the... More
