City sightseeing tour

EXPLORE LÜBECK BY BUS!

THE CITY SIGHTSEEING TOUR WITH THE BRIGHT RED OPEN-TOP DOUBLE-DECKER BUS IS A SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT IN THE SUMMER.

For all those who like to keep the big picture in mind and would like to relax on a voyage of discovery through Lübeck’s wonderful Old Town, this unmistakable open-top bus awaits you from May to October. The tour will take you through Lübeck’s Old Town and then once round the historic Old Town island. You will pass the famous emblem of the city, the medieval brick churches and proud merchants’ houses. And then it’s off to the green open spaces outside Lübeck’s city gates: the suburbs with their magical parks, Hanseatic villas with their spacious gardens and numerous sailing and water sports clubs which thread the banks in the direct vicinity of the Old Town.

The roughly 50-minute trip starts at the Untertrave/Holstentorbrücke bus stop. If you feel like exploring this Hanseatic city from different perspectives, you should use Lübeck’s combi-ticket for sightseeing trips around the city and the harbour. After the bus trip, simply switch to the ship and discover Lübeck all over again from a very different angle. Cityschifffahrt’s jetty lies on Untertrave/corner of Mengstraße at the level of the pedestrian bridge.

Please note: Since 22. 8. 2022, the Open Air Bus will unfortunately have to cease its operation. Due to a full closure at the intersection of Beckergrube and Breite Straße, the Open Air Bus will not be able to continue its route until 31 October 2022. Should the construction work be completed earlier, the round tour will start again.
