Full description

Discover the city of Lübeck on a private guided walking tour. See a variety of historic buildings of the Old Hanseatic City, a designated UNESCO Heritage Site, with an optional guided tour of the Museumshafen also available. Meet your guide by the Holstentor, a gate many seafarers were jubilant to pass through after their long journies. Stroll past the Salzspeicher, or Salt Storage Houses, along the canal. Next, see St. Mary's Church, which was built on the highest point on Lübeck's Old Town Island.

Stop by St. Jacobi's Church, which was the 'Church of the Seafarers' during the Hanseatic era. Your guide will bring the era to life as you hear the stories of the priceless artwork within its walls.

As you walk back towards the canals, see the Hansemuseum, and next to it are the famous lift bridges of Lübeck, if you are lucky they'll be raised while you visit. Your walking tour ends at the Museumshafen, or Harbor Museum. Extend your tour to include a guided tour of the Museumshafen. This unique museum is owned by the members who moor their sailboats and yachts in the marina. Discover the remarkable history behind some of these seaworthy vessels.
