Full description

Take a short train journey from Hamburg to the charismatic Lübeck to experience life in a medieval town, admire the iconic red brick buildings, and discover the most important world heritage sites. Includes round-trip train tickets and Private Guide in Lübeck. Immerse yourself in the history, cultural heritage and legends of medieval Germany!

Choose the 6-hour option to discover the highlights of Lübeck, which is less than an hour away from Hamburg. For your convenience, round-trip train tickets are included so you can easily join a Local Guide at the Lübeck’s train station for a walking tour of this historic city. The first major highlight will be the Holsten Gate (Holstentor Museum), a unique Brick Gothic construction of the city’s medieval fortification that houses Lübeck’s history museum. Inside you will find antique ship models, suits of armor, weapons and other artifacts related to commerce, power, and wealth.

Walking through the narrow medieval streets of Lübeck’s Old Town, you will quickly get a feeling as if you’re lost in time. Enjoy the lively atmosphere of the Market Square and admire the medieval bricks and towers of St Peter’s Church, St Catherine’s Church and St Jacob Church. Learn the fascinating history of the precursor of modern hospitals, the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital. Another point of interest will be the elegant Gothic Church of St Mary. Inside, you will be astonished by the gravity-defying high ceiling, a unique wall clock, and a bell that fell from the tower, hit the floor and was left there for everyone to admire. At the end of sightseeing, your Private Guide will escort you to the train station, where you will board the return train to Hamburg.

Choose the 7-hour option to book private car transfers between the train station and your accommodation in Hamburg. This option includes pickup and drop-off in a private vehicle to make it easier for you to get to the station on time for your train. Save time and effort by booking private transport in advance.
