Lübeck is Germany’s largest Baltic port, not far from the former East Germany and
Scandinavia. While it is over 850 years old, Lübeck is a bustling city of the 20th
century with a population of over 250,000. Its abundant music, theater, art and
colorful festivals attest to Lübeck’s rank as a cultural center of Northern Germany.
In Lübeck one finds a historical downtown area centered in a big modern city. It's
location so close to the rough but extremely beautiful coastline makes Lübeck attractive
for a variety of water sport activities.
While the city itself has so many different things to offer, the region has even
more. Hamburg, Bremen and Berlin are within a 100 mile radius, and also many smaller
towns, rich in history and culture are worth a visit.
