Fresh and clear as far as the eye can see - that is the North Sea.
Experience a unique island world and the clear, fresh air of the coast. The five North Sea islands and the high-seas island of Heligoland are always popular excursion destinations. And the wonderful sand and grass beaches of the North Sea are also a hit with everybody. And above all, the spectacle of ebbing and flooding tides is a treat worth waiting for; at low ebb you can enjoy a fascinating hike through the tidelands. Sporting enthusiasts will find ideal conditions for cycling, paddling, riding, surfing and of course bathing in the sea.
Idyllic bays and kilometres of beaches - that is the Baltic.
The beautiful sunny island of Fehmarn is just off the coast. The clear water and the small waves attract visitors to the long sandy beaches. Here you will discover the unspoilt natural beauty of the coast along the Flensburg fjord and be fascinated by the host of picturesque villages along the Schlei and the many cities with a maritime atmosphere.
The Hansa city of Lübeck, the “Queen of the Hanseatic League”, is one of Germany’s most beautiful towns. Although the town was severely damaged during the 2nd World War, it stands today in all of its glory, with mighty brick churches, bourgeois houses steeped in history and picturesque institutional and residential courtyards. The old part of the city boasts around 1,000 protected buildings and is encircled by the rivers Trave and Wakenitz. The magnitude of the restoration work has been honoured by UNESCO to the extent that Lübeck is now authorised to call itself a “World Cultural Heritage” site.
Why not take a city tour around the old town on foot or in a boat, or take a look at the maze of houses from on top of the lookout tower of the St.-Petri-Kirche. In winter, too, you will find Lübeck especially romantic, when the harbour freezes over and when historic Christmas and arts- and crafts markets are held around the Rathaus and the Marienkirche, as well as in the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital.
The Youth hostel Lübeck „Altstadt“ in Mengstrasse is situated in a historic building in the middle of the old town. All of the sights, culturalfacilities, restaurants and cafes are only a stone’s throw away.
