Welcome to Lübeck

Joyful, lively, serene - that's Lübeck's heartbeat, which pulsates through the winding streets of the Old Town island and fills the impressive brick architecture with life. Our Nordic beauty, with all the charm of the original port city, welcomes you openly with its motto "Concordia domi foris pax" - harmony inside, peace outside. A feeling of community accompanies you on your way past the red brick historical monuments: here we look out for each other and are always happy to welcome friends from near and far.

Go with the flow and take a care-free stroll through the UNESCO World Heritage Site, breathe in the history, discover art and culture in unexpected places and experience Lübeck's elixir of life - the waterways connecting Lübeck and the Baltic Sea! Here, you are always welcome!
