Be sure to take time to take a tour of the Old Rathaus. Then you can pop right in front of the building to the marzipan cafe! The city center is filled with small galleries and beautiful churches.

The Centre of historic Lubeck is a world heritage site and rightly so! The old town contains many really lovely historic buildings and is very pleasant for a visit of a few hours or a few days for those with a more in depth interest.

We go here every year for the Weihnachtsmark. It is cosy, friendly, nice and just lifts the Christmas spirit.

there was a nice square with different shops and some vendors in the square. Oldtown is nice to walk around in. Would recommend it. Take time to see the sites.

I've been here before and there's always something new to discover while revisiting old favourites. And the question is, as always, when will Holstentor collapse?

It is lovely to walk around the Altstadt in Lubeck and look at all the old buildings. Look out for the two headed eagle on the city coat of arms.

Wander around on foot to appreciate all the beautiful old buildings. There are some lovely ones down by the river. The bridge had mistletoe on it today and a sign marking it as a kissing bridge. Take advantage!
