Special moments

Highlights from the events calendar

In Lübeck, culture is in season all year round and numerous highlights enliven the historic Old Town  Here you can find some selected highlights from Lübeck’s events calendar. Summer or winter, Lübeck awaits you with moments that will remain in the memory. In summer, the sound of music often wafts through the streets of this Hanseatic city as every year, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival entices artists from home and abroad from the world of classical music to Lübeck. Every year, the banks of the River Trave become a sociable meeting point when the Duckstein Festival takes its bow with crafts, music and culinary delights. Every two years, an absolute labour of love makes summer all the sweeter: The HanseKulturFestival is the magical street festival staged by residents of Lübeck for the residents and of course for our guests.
Our tip: The "Kulturfunke" initiative which promotes the local art and culture scene affects the entire city by presenting countless and often spontaneous art performances and positions Lübeck as an incomparable city of culture. It's for sure: Without art it gets quiet. 

More culture, more Lübeck: If you do not happen to be in Lübeck at the moment or if you are here but just can't get enough. Or if you want to dive deeper into the life and culture of the Hanseatic city, read our cultural magazine Lübeck ZWISCHENZEILEN.
