The feeling is indescribable. You go on board a softly rocking pleasure boat and your heart opens up. You don’t have to do anything, simply sit there comfortably, take a deep breath and leave it all to the captain. You can look left or right and drink a coffee as the historical façades, church spires, bridges and boats glide slowly by like friendly old acquaintances. You can enjoy the quiet ride and the emotional impact that Lübeck has on you. The one-hour harbour and canal tour around the historic Old Town is a maritime classic and very much to be recommended. Things get really spectacular on the Splash Tour where you explore Lübeck on land and water with the floating amphibious bus.
Harbour and canal tours in Lübeck
The river run on the Trave from Lübeck to the resort of Travemünde 20 kilometres away is something special for the senses, opening up new horizons. Here you go on board a comfortable ship offering panoramic views as you relax and glide past the idyllic Schellbruch nature reserve, the old fishing village of Gothmund and the beautiful Dummersdorf Bank all the way to the Baltic Sea. And of course, back again if you like. If you’re more of a wild type and would like to experience nature at first hand and in its pristine state, an excursion along the River Wakenitz, the “Amazon of the North”, is the answer for you. Come on board!
In dreamy “Painters’ Corner”, you can enjoy the view of the beautiful Old Town scenery in the Cathedral district.
