Admission fees are actually a foreign word at the HanseKulturFestival, but the programme is so varied that a few attractions justify a dip into your wallet. In return, these adventures will offer you an unforgettable experience that not everyone will have, so it's worth taking a look. Who can claim to have seen the festival from above in a hot air balloon? Exactly! 

HanseKulturFestival Ballooning
Fri., 8 p.m. departure • Sat., 6 a.m. (alternative date) Sat., 8 p.m. departure
Per person € 250. If flights cannot take place due to weather conditions, balloon flights can take place at other times. Group rates available. Registration and booking at office@geo-ballonfahren.de or phone: 0451-400850. Sometimes you don't know who's rooted in your own city. Did you know that the company that covered the Arc de Triomphe for Christo comes from Lübeck? Now you know! geo - Die Luftwerker specialise in all kinds of fabric processing, including hot air balloons. And it is precisely these that will be launching a total of 15 balloons into the airy heights above the festival grounds. Be there, you only get to see this sight once.

The highest point of the festival
Fri.-Sun., 10 a.m. • 7 p.m. (last ascent at 6.30 p.m.)  St. Peter’s Tower Ascent: € 5,- adults, € 3,- students up to 27 years, children up to 18 years free, groups of 10 or more pay for 8 people.
It is simply the most beautiful view over Lübeck. The viewing platform of St. Peter's church enjoys great popularity all year round. A view from above of the Obertrave, the Music University, the Liebesbrücke will be particularly colourful and above all unique during the HanseKulturFestival. Because this festival will never be like this again. Don't forget your camera or mobile phone!
