Tips for your trip to Lübeck

About the location

It was one of the most prominent members of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trading alliance in medieval Northern Europe. Its strategic location on the Baltic Sea contributed to its prosperity as a center for maritime trade and commerce.

Lübeck is famous for its marzipan, a sweet confection made from almonds and sugar. Niederegger, one of the oldest marzipan manufacturers in the world, is based in Lübeck and operates a flagship store and café in the city.

Best timing

The best time to travel to Lübeck as a photographer is during the spring and summer months when the weather is pleasant, the city's medieval architecture shines under the sunlight, and outdoor events and festivals provide vibrant photographic opportunities.


You can travel to Lübeck by air via Hamburg Airport and then take a train, bus, or rental car, by train with Deutsche Bahn offering frequent services, by car via the A1 and A20 motorways, by bus with regional and long-distance services, or by ferry from Scandinavian or Baltic Sea destinations. Once in Lübeck, public transportation options include buses and taxis, and the city's compact size makes it walkable for exploring the city center.
