The stern is pointing out to the sea, just as if the ship was only waiting for the harbor pilot to set sails and embark for the Baltic Sea. However, the Passat has found her last port here. She was built in 1911, when sailing ships were already a species on the brink of extinction. However her owner, Laeiz Lines, wanted to keep the tradition of their famous "Flying-P-Liners" alive. The Passat was the most up-to-date sailing ship in the world then. She was still serving as a school ship for the merchant navy in the 1950s when a similar vessel, the Pamir, sank in the South Atlantic in 1957 and took 80 cadets with her. That was the end for the Passat: she was taken out of service and was to be wrecked, but the city of Lubeck bought the ship and towed her to her old home port.


Extending over the centuries, the imposing town hall is a patchwork of different architectural styles. The original building dates from 1230. The Lange Haus (Long House) was added in 1298 and extended in 1442 with an ornate main hall. The last major change was made in 1570, with a stylish Dutch renaissance-style limestone building erected on the wing facing Breite Straße. The town hall is still the seat of the city council and can be visited in guided tours. The rococo Audienzsaal (reception hall) from 1760 is particularly impressive.


The Königstraße is the little sister of Breite Straße – a bit less prominent, but by no means less attractive for shoppers. Here, the omnipresent chain retailers you would find in every shopping district are clearly outnumbered by significantly more interesting individual stores, from florists to bakeries. Since the street suffered less damage in World War II than its nearby counterpart, it also has more historical buildings to offer to the sightseer. Particularly notable is the Romanesque brick house of the Löwen Pharmacy at the corner Dr.-Julius-Leber-Straße, built in 1230 and thus the oldest surviving secular building in Lübeck. Also worth extra attention are the town palais No. 21, with a Rococo facade from 1770, which today houses the Willy Brandt Museum; and the elegantly plain neoclassical Reformed Church from 1826. -Oliver Henkel

St. Mary's Church

One of the city’s oldest church, the St. Mary’s Church is a gateway to Lubeck’s cultural history. An exemplary model of North German brick gothic architecture, the church is a symbol of the city’s prosperity. During World War II, the church suffered grave damages; however, the city restored the structure in a way that retained the grandeur of the church, whilst exhibiting the war wounds. The broken remains of the historic bells are an example of the mindful restoration. In addition to the notable architecture and fascinating history, the church houses several cultural highlights, such as the astronomical clock, the historic carillon and the Fredenhagen altarpiece. The Danse Macabre stained glass of the church is possibly its most popular feature. The vivid windows of the Danse Macabre Chapel boast of colorful artwork, depicting morbid figures of those dead and alive. Visit the St. Mary’s Church for an unforgettable immersive experience.


Museumshafen is a port museum in Lubeck that is located in the Northwestern area of the city. It showcases ships, barges and other vessels to avid tourists. The museum is a fine place to witness many rare and beautiful ships that are kept in a good condition. Some of the exhibits include historical ships like Rikke, Krik Vig and Sirius.

Lübeck Cathedral

Construction work of Lübeck Cathedral began in 1173 and despite later architectural changes, the cathedral still resembles a monumental religious fortress. Gothic elements like the steeple roofs, the chancel and western wing were added in the 13th and 14th centuries. The Reformation in the 16th century did not change the status of the cathedral, except that the bishop was Protestant rather than Catholic. Like much of the Old Town, the cathedral was heavily damaged in a 1942 air-raid, but several priceless treasures survived including the 17-meter (55.77-feet) high Christus Triumphator from 1477 and the Gothic balcony and clock from 1628.
