Lübeck in detail


If you're keen to walk, consider two areas refreshing for their beauty and serenity.

Head south along An der Obertrave southwest of the Altstadt; you’ll pass one of Lübeck’s loveliest corners, the Malerwinkel (Painters’ Quarter), where you can take a break on garden benches among blooming flowers, gazing out at the houses and white-picket fences across the water.

Another lovely area lies along the canals, including Krähenteich, southeast of the centre.

If you're cycling, head to Mietrad Mielke and pick up the new Bike Map Lubeck (€8.90).
