I met Camelia at the Old City Gate and spent 2 hours with Camelia. I got a lot of good information about Lübeck from the modern era and the founding of Lübeck in the early middle ages. I really liked walking through the city and Camelia taking through small neighborhood passage ways, old churches, X-mas market, canal area, and city hall. I got a good overall of the city. I think this tour is a good overview of the city and you can choose what you want to see on your own in more detail. Camelia introduce to Niederegger Lübeck to me. It is a historic confectioner and they have been making marzipan treats.

Es hat alles super geklappt! Da wir später in Lübeck angekommen sind, als geplant, wurde die Tour auf Wunsch problemlos auf einen anderen Zeitpunkt verschoben. Die Führung war sehr interessant und wir haben viel über die Geschichte Lübeck´s erfahren. Kann ich nur empfehlen.

Frau Willms war eine sehr kompetente und freundliche Führerin durch diese wunderschöne Stadt. Sie konnte alle unsere Fragen beantworten und hat uns sogar länger die Besonderheiten der Stadt nahe gebracht, als eigentlich vorgesehen war, da sie merkte, dass wir sehr interessiert sind. Tolle Führung - wirklich empfehlenswert!
