Day Tours & Excursions

In addition to visiting the many attractions of our beautiful Hanseatic city, we also offer the following excursions to help you get to know other wonderful parts of northern Germany:

Holstein Switzerland

Eutin/Bad Malente/Plön

On this trip through the charming landscape of Holstein Switzerland you'll get to see the Romanesque Basilica of Altenkrempe, the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval church of eastern Holstein. We'll then head to the rose city Eutin, the town of Carl Maria von Webers. Visit the castle or simply enjoy a tour through the castle grounds. From Eutin we'll set off for Bad Malente, where we'll take a five-lake boat ride. Discover the diversity and beauty of the lakes on this boat trip, which ends in Plön. Plön is surrounded by twelve lakes, which give the town a very special feel. Even the castle, which has belonged to the Fielmann Academy since 2002, is a great place for a stroll, and the Widow's Palace is worth a visit.

Mecklenburg

Rostock/Wismar/Bad Doberan

"When God created the world, he started with Mecklenburg," wrote Fritz Reuter in his book. Find out for yourself on a trip through wide fields and romantic tree-lined roads if he was right.
The tour will take you to Rostock and Bad Doberan, where you can visit the cathedral. From there we'll take a detour to Heiligendamm, and then continue on the narrow-gauge railway "Molli" to Kühlungsborn. Next we'll head to the Hanseatic city of Wismar. On a city tour you'll see that there is evidence of a rich past here as well. This, along with the town's port, is what creates such a special atmosphere. We'll then travel back to Lübeck along the coast through the Klützer Winkel and Dassow.

The Old Salt Route

Lüneburg/Ratzeburg/Mölln

In addition to many other goods, salt from Lüneburg was also transported to Lübeck along military and trade routes. The name "Salt Route" was never mentioned in documents. It was actually referred to as the "Holy Roman Imperial Free Route". It was one of the oldest trade routes in northern Europe. From Lübeck it runs through Ratzeburg to Mölln, the town of Till Eulenspiegel, which was under Lübeck's rule until into the 17th century. It then runs through delightful landscapes to Lauenburg, the three-state city (Lower Saxony, Mecklenburg and Schleswig-Holstein). Here you can stop to look at the ship lift, or simply continue right on to beautiful Lüneburg.

After a walk through the palace grounds, the tour will then take you to one of the most beautiful manors of Holstein, Panker Palace, which belonged to Prince Moritz of Hessen.

A Perfect Day in Lübeck

Spend an entire day in our beautiful Hanseatic city and combine various activities from our extensive offer. For example:

  • From the Holsten Gate Museum to the Townhall: learn everything about Lübeck's role as the most important trade centre in the Baltic Sea region and as the former centre of power of Hanseatic merchants.
  • The Cathedral and St. Anne's Quarter: see the former sovereign territory of the cathedral canons at Lübeck's oldest church, as well as Germany's most significant collection of medieval carved altarpieces up close.
  • From the Behnhaus/Drägerhaus Museum through the Bürgergärten to the Hospital of the Holy Spirit: you'll start your walking tour in the museum of the two merchants' houses and then discover a tranquil green paradise in the Bürgergärten (gardens) right in the heart of Lübeck's old town.
  • The Maritime Day: begins with breakfast on the Trave with a view over Lübeck's old town. Afterwards the tour will take you through the old town's seafarers' quarter where you'll enjoy a fish sandwich as a midday snack. Next you'll head through the founding quarter by boat, following the Trave to reach its mouth, and then on to Travemünde. Here you'll see, for example, Europe's largest ferry terminal (Terminal Skandinavienkai) as well as the four-masted barque "Passat" from the water. You can then enjoy coffee and cake high "above the clouds" in the restaurant of the same name at the Maritim Hotel (roughly 115m high). After a stroll through Travemünde, we'll head back to Lübeck where you can look back over the day while having a cosy meal in, for example, the historical wine cellar.
  • The Hanseatic Day: begins with a walking tour through the old town of the Hanseatic city, as well as the townhall. After lunch in a traditional, Hanseatic atmosphere, for example at the "Schiffergesellschaft" restaurant, we'll finish up at the Hansemuseum where you'll receive wonderful insight into the origins and development of the Hanseatic League.
