Explore the Hanseatic city & seaside resort

Guided city tours in Lübeck and Travemünde

With its rich history, the Queen of the Hanseatic League is predestined to offer guests exciting city tours. Whether you choose a tour through the mysterious alleys and courtyards, to discover the Hanseatic history, or to gain unexpected insights into the life and architecture of the city – there is so much to experience.

In addition to classic city tours as a supporting program, you can include scavenger hunts and mystery tours as a team building activity, or immerse yourself in Lübeck's exciting history on a historical costume tour. And as the Christmas capital of northern Germany, a guided tour through Christmasy Lübeck, with a mulled wine at the Christmas market at the end of the tour is not to be missed in winter.

Travemünde also has plenty of beautiful experiences to offer, in addition to large freight ships and ferries crossing directly next to the fine sandy beaches that invite you to stroll. Did you know, for example, that you can explore the entire promenade of Travemünde and the Priwall peninsula by foot and passenger ferry in a promenade circuit? This way you can discover the maritime beauties of the seaside resort on your own.
