Guided Tours

Our city is like a piece of art waiting to be discovered and admired. A guided city tour is a good opportunity for newcomers to Lübeck to collect exciting and surprising snapshots of its history and architecture. However, it does not always have to be the grand tour; even small house tours are popular offers at the HanseKulturFestival, allowing a look behind the scenes that is otherwise not available. Come with us on a stroll through the picturesque cathedral quarter!
