More information about amazing Lübeck

Luebeck is without question one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. The medieval centre - pittoresquely seated on an island in the river Trave - was declared as a UNESCO world heritage in 1987. The narrow streets, the seven church towers, the old merchants’ houses, and the hanseatic atmosphere make the old town an amazing place to be. [read more].

In medieval times, Luebeck was head of the Hanse League, an international confederation of merchant guilds that regulated and controlled trade in Northern and Central Europe during three centuries. Famous cities collaborating in the Hanse were Novgorod, Bergen, Bruges, Stockholm, Gdansk, Riga, and Reval. The history of the Hanse is documented in the “European Hanse Museum” [read more].

Luebeck was home for three famous Nobel Prize winners:

Thomas Mann (1875-1955, Nobel Prize for Literature 1929) was born in Luebeck and lived with his brother Heinrich Mann in this beautiful city until the age of 18. The house of his grandmother opposite of the beautiful St. Mary’s church was perpetuated as the home of the family in his famous novel “Buddenbrooks” and is today the museum “Buddenbrook House” [read more].

Willy Brandt (1913-1992, Nobel Peace Prize 1971) was one of the most important political figures in the post-war era of Germany. Fighting in the resistance against the Nazis during Second World War, he became the first social-democratic chancellor in 1969. His fight for peace and freedom in Europe is documented in the museum “Willy Brandt House” [read more].

Günter Grass (1927-2015, Nobel Prize for Literature 1999) chose Luebeck as his home with 68 years. The author of the “Tin Drum” (German: Die Blechtrommel) was also a sculptor and graphic artists. His works are exhibited in the “Günter Grass House” where he had his office [read more].

Numerous museums can be found in the Old Town and surrounding quarters that document the history of Lubeck and show exhibitions of art, technics, and more [read more].

Just 15 kilometres from the centre where the river Trave flows into the Baltic Sea, the district Travemuende lies with wide beaches, an old town with narrow streets, and the old harbor [read more].
