General City Tours

The tour begins under the Holsten Gate. What does the inscription "Concordia Domi Foris Pax" mean? How thick are the walls? Why is the gate leaning? How many gates did the fortifications have in the past? These and many more questions about the city's 800-year-old history will be answered during this walking tour.

You'll be taken past the salt storehouses where the "white gold" was stored, along An der Obertrave and through Gr. Petersgrube. Here you'll be able to take a look at a typical merchant's house. Next you'll head uphill to St. Peter's Church, one of the old churches in the old town. From St. Peter's you'll walk to the marketplace, where the imposing townhall reflects the spirit of a Hanseatic city.


Very close to the townhall is Lübeck's largest church, St. Mary's. It's worth taking more than just a glance at the "mother of brick Gothic". Here lie the remains of the bells that fell in 1942. The tour then takes you past the Buddenbrook House to the Hospital of the Holy Spirit, which is worth a look inside. It is one of northern Europe's oldest social institutions and is still used as a retirement home.

On your way you'll also pass one of the many alleys that characterise the city just as much as the noble merchants' houses and churches.
