Day Trip to Lübeck
Just 45 minutes train from Hamburg is a small town so picturesque you’d almost believe you’d stepped into a fairytale, where crooked towers and turrets peer over manicured lawns and reflect in the river lazily flowing around Old Lübeck. This charming enclave dates back to the 1300’s when it was the capital of the Hanseatic League, an ancient trading alliance, and today the town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wander through streets from the Middle Ages and marvel at architecture still standing from the Golden Age, be charmed by Lübeck’s beauty and discover its historic importance as the centre of maritime commerce and trade for northern Europe. With a local by your side, you’ll be able to unlock the history of this magical town that’s been untouched by time, enjoy some delicious cuisine and gastronomic treats, and go beyond what your guidebook tells you about Lübeck.
