Your professional real estate agent in Lübeck
The Hanseatic City of Lübeck is located in the most northerly federal state in Germany, Schleswig-Holstein. The silhouette of the city is defined by seven church towers, which is why Lübeck is also known as the “City of Seven Towers”. Lübeck’s landmark is the Holstentor, a town gateway in the centre of the city, which was built in the late-Gothic style. The former Salzspeicher, or salt storehouses, are in the immediate vicinity of the Holstentor. They bear witness to Lübeck’s past as an important centre of the salt trade. Moreover, the city is also renowned as being a manufacturing base for marzipan. Lübeck is also the birthplace of the German writer Thomas Mann and forms the backdrop to the novel “Buddenbrooks”. There is a museum in the Buddenbrook House, which deals with the life and literary work of the Mann family. The historic old town is dominated by the traditional red-brick architecture and parts of it were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1987. The city offers everything imaginable for a modern urban lifestyle: numerous cafés and bistros, markets and specialist shops, as well as a wide range of cultural activities. The Trave flows through the city and enters the Baltic Sea at Travemünde, only half an hour away from Lübeck. The Baltic Sea resort of Travemünde, with its white sandy beach and maritime flair, is a popular destination for excursions.
