Lübeck, once queen of the Hanse region, has retained the character of an old Hanseatic city. Exploring the narrow streets and courtyards of the UNESCO World Heritage Site is a real pleasure.

The ancient city gate Holstentor, the medieval town hall and St. Mary’s Church form the heart of the historic centre. Museums in former monasteries, the so-called Buddenbrookhaus, maintained in memory of the brothers and authors Thomas and Heinrich Mann, and the Günter-Grass-Haus, dedicated to the literary and artistic works of the Nobel Prize laureate, are well worth a visit.
