Lübeck has always been unique. In the Middle Ages, Lübeck was founded as a principal city within the Hanseatic League from an alliance of merchants' associations and towns about 700 years ago. Fast-forward to the present, the city of Lübeck is now celebrating its 875th birthday.

The heart of old Hamburg beats on the historic Nikolaifleet and in Deichstraße. Here, representative facades adorn the gabled houses from the 17th century. They were the offices, warehouses and homes of the wealthy patricians.

The "Michel", the town hall with its magnificent façade and the landing stages in St. Pauli are other famous attractions. At the Jungfernstieg, shopping and looking around is a must.
