The UNESCO Heritage Site of the Old Hanseatic City of Lubeck is a city founded on seafaring trade. The history of the maritime traditions in Lubeck is just one of the fascinating things you’ll learn from your Private 5-Star Guide on this 2-hour walking tour. Lubeck is nicknamed ‘Queen of the Hanse,’ as it served as the Capital of the Hanseatic League during that era.

On this private walking tour you’ll start at the Holstentor – a gate many seafarers were jubilant to pass through after their long journies. Your Expert Guide will lead past the Salzspeicher, or Salt Storage Houses, along the canal. Next, you’ll see St. Mary’s Church – built on the highest point on Lubeck’s Old Town Island.

Your Knowledgeable Guide will bring that era to life as you hear the stories of about the priceless artwork within its walls. As you walk back towards the canals, you’ll see the Hansemuseum and next to it are the famous lift bridges of Lubeck – maybe they’ll be raised while you visit!
