Each year, many people are attracted by the sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea, located only a few minutes away from the center of Lübeck. Many of them take the opportunity to also visit the island with the old town to experience its historical buildings and picturesque pathways. They are fascinated by the Hanseatic City which was declared a world cultural heritage site by the UNESCO.
Lübeck is a city combining aspects which seem to be opposites, such as an excellent traffic infrastructure with unique leisure opportunities in the immediate surroundings. One can reach Lübeck quickly and comfortably with the Intercity train or the Autobahn from all directions. The airport of Lübeck offers direct flights to many destinations all over Europe, while the Hamburg airport is only one our away. The biggest European ferry port offers direct connections to reach the untouched nature of Scandinavia.
Most of all, however, Lübeck is a city surrounded by water. The island with the old town is surrounded by Trave, Wakenitz and the Kanal. The Lübeck Bay is only a few minutes away and is considered one of the most beautiful paradises for sailing and bathing of the Baltic Sea.
A lively cultural scene turns Lübeck into an experience for any lover of music and the arts. Among theater and opera enthusiasts, the Lübeck theater is known for its high artistic level. The Music- and Congress Hall repeatedly attracts international superstars. The conservatory contributes to the musical live of the city in many ways. Not to forget the numerous museums with their constantly changing exhibitions.
In other words: In the city at the banks of the Trave, work and leisure combine to a truly unique quality of life.
