The Centre of historic Lubeck is a world heritage site and rightly so! The old town contains many really lovely historic buildings and is very pleasant for a visit of a few hours or a few days for those with a more in depth interest.

We go here every year for the Weihnachtsmark. It is cosy, friendly, nice and just lifts the Christmas spirit.

there was a nice square with different shops and some vendors in the square. Oldtown is nice to walk around in. Would recommend it. Take time to see the sites.

I've been here before and there's always something new to discover while revisiting old favourites. And the question is, as always, when will Holstentor collapse?

It is lovely to walk around the Altstadt in Lubeck and look at all the old buildings. Look out for the two headed eagle on the city coat of arms.

There is great character about the town with it's old buildings and market square. The Xmas market scene was in full swing with lots of stalls selling all manner of crafts and German food. The whole place was buzzing and there was a great atmosphere from afternoon onwards. There is lots of normal retail but the markets are what it... More

Wander around on foot to appreciate all the beautiful old buildings. There are some lovely ones down by the river. The bridge had mistletoe on it today and a sign marking it as a kissing bridge. Take advantage!

We took photos everywhere, no time to do any tours, just picked up some marzipan and shopped for an extra luggage. People were very nice to show us where to go. Also we had some awesome ice cream along the way. We only had one hour, wish we could have stayed longer.

The Christmas Market was in full action, packed with Glühwein-drinking tourists (and maybe locals), and Christmas Atmosphere. Beautiful houses and Churches and everything packed into a small area. We did a guided walk through the old town and would probably have missed the small yards in between the old houses (Gänge & Höfe). We went into the City Hall, which... More
