Culture & Cuisine

Cultural Lübeck and culinary social programmes

The Hanseatic city and the seaside resort have a rich history that fills all sorts of exciting museums - not to mention our three Nobel Prize Laureates, each of whom has a museum dedicated to them.

As well as the historic Town Hall, which can be visited individually or in a group, you can also admire the city from above or go on a culinary voyage of discovery.

Marzipan, Rotspon wine and mulled wine at the Christmas market are just some of the specialities you can sample with your group.

Brick gothic in full splendour

St. Peter's observation platform

Lübeck from above: From the 50-metre-high viewing platform, you can see over the roofs of the Hanseatic city and the surrounding countryside - and as far as the Baltic Sea on a clear day. But don't worry, there's a lift to save you having to climb all the way to the top!

The vaults of St. Mary's

Experience the mother church of the brick Gothic style on a special tour that takes you into normally inaccessible areas. It goes high up, so you better not be afraid of heights. The reward: breathtaking views.

Duration: approximately 1 hour.

Exclusive tour of the Town Hall

Visit one of the most beautiful historic town halls in Germany. Lübeck's Town Hall is still used by the citizens and the senate. With a bit of luck, you'll meet Lübeck's mayor, who will tell you about the secret passage in his office. Duration: approx. 1 hour

European Hansemuseum Lübeck

History comes alive. The museum shows the development of the Hanseatic League in Europe with scientifically developed installations, classical exhibition elements and an interactive museum concept. The modern museum building with its roof terrace, inner courtyard and old church square is the perfect setting for the historic castle monastery, which is integrated into the building complex. It couldn't be more Hanseatic.

Guided tour approx. 2-3 hrs.

Holstentor Museum

Step inside Lübeck's landmark and let a medieval merchant introduce you to the fascinating world of long-distance trade and seafaring.

Seaside Resort Museum Travemünde

Discover the history of Travemünde as a seaside resort: Immerse yourself in another era with films, audio stations and interesting exhibits on topics as diverse as shipping, fishing and life in a health resort. Then as now, the beach and the sea are the hallmarks of the third oldest seaside resort, so it is not surprising that the theme of swimwear is addressed.

Culinary Lübeck

Meet Lübeck's Marzipan masters

When you hear marzipan, do you immediately think of Lübeck? That's probably because of Niederegger. The family business has been making the world-famous marzipan for eight generations. Try the Lübeck speciality at the company's headquarters, directly opposite the Lübeck Town Hall.
While you are enjoying this delicious treat, you can watch one of the confectioners model marzipan or learn about its history during a visit to the Marzipan Museum. Did you know, for example, that marzipan was once sold in pharmacies as a tonic?

Tours & tastings

Culinary tours with a difference: Taste original Lübeck beers, the famous Rotspon wine or local gin variations. Together with your team, you will gain an insight into the brewing process, the history of Rotspon and exciting background information - the best way to end a conference day. Cheers to that!

Duration: approx.1-1,5 hrs. depending on the provider
