Hanseatic city of Lübeck
Lübeck is unique and wonderful. This is why UNESCO declared the existing cityscape to be a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1987. The water-enclosed Old Town with its roughly 1,800 listed buildings, historical alleyways and criss-crossed lanes is not, however, just pretty to the eye, but is also the hub of an extremely lively, major city with roughly 214,000 inhabitants.
Lübeck's museums are a special pleasure: The St. Annen Museum with the famous Memling Altar and the modern Art Hall. The Behn House accommodates paintings and traditional Lübeck residential culture. The Castle Monastery presents different kinds of exhibitions. And, of course, there is also the world-famous Holsten Gate: Its interior walls are dedicated to the work of the Lübeck-based export merchants, who have fashioned the city since medieval days in economic, political, cultural and architectural styles.
Buddenbrook House Lübeck
Behind the white front of Buddenbrook House, built in 1758, lies one of the most unique literary museums in the world, created for Expo 2000 as the world’s only literature project. In the permanent exhibition "The Buddenbrooks – Novel of the Century", a piece of international literature becomes living reality: Thomas Mann’s book in one’s hand, one enters the upstairs rooms of the historic family home to find the novel reproduced as a walk-in story – an invitation to join in a literary puzzle. In a second exhibition "The Manns – a family of authors", the lives and works of this amazing family unfold chronologically. Numerous sound and film recordings invite the visitor to discover the Manns in a particularly personal way.
Plön castle and lake Plön
Plön Castle was once the seat of dukes, princes and the Danish king, today the majestically over the lake enthroned castle can be visited in the context of free tours. You can reach it via the Schlossberg.
The great Plön Lake Tour and the Bosau ride over the great lake Plön are fantastic. All ships have indoor and outdoor courts. Both courses offer sensational views of Plön and its castle.
Eutin castle and historic old town
Schleswig-Holstein is hardly more impressive: the four-winged complex of the Eutin Castle, from the north north-backsteinern with entrance and south tower, south-facing courtyard with fountain and moat around the building is located directly on the lake and is surrounded by a sprawling English landscape garden. The castle impresses today as a museum and with special exhibitions visitors from all over the world. Extensive ceiling paintings, precious wall coverings, original pieces of furniture, paintings, clocks or pieces of equipment such as three unusual ship models of Tsar Peter the Great can be admired.
You can experience the historic old town of Eutin with its large, old market place, numerous historical facades of different styles and the brick St. Michaelis church on a tour.
Fehmarn has something interesting for everyone: small holidaymakers enjoy the many fish in the maritime center in Burg or go exploring in the submarine museum in Burgstaaken. Music fans make a pilgrimage to the Jimi Hendrix memorial stone, which commemorates the late 1970 music legend and his last appearance on Fehmarn. The lighthouses and of course the landmark of Fehmarn, the Fehmarnsund Bridge, provide great photo opportunities for the holiday album.
U 11 is a German submarine of submarine class 205 of the Bundeswehr. It had the NATO code S190. Since 2005, the boat can be visited as a submarine museum Fehmarn in the port of Burgstaaken. The boat is over water, fully visible, situated and accessed via a pedestrian bridge. The museum also has an exhibition pavilion where you can read about the German submarines and their history in the post-war period. The inspection of the submarine is possible without restriction.
The marine center Fehmarn is a show aquarium in Burg on the Baltic island Fehmarn. On an area of 3000 m² or in 4 million liters of sea water sharks and tropical coral gardens are presented.
Enjoy the magnificent view of the Bay of Lübeck: many sailing ships - new and old sailors - provide an indescribable picture. The arriving large ferries, the "fat pots", can be seen from afar.
After almost 450 years of uninterrupted work, the Old Lighthouse in Travemünde in 1972 went into its well-deserved retirement. Popular destination is the oldest lighthouse in Germany.
In the Siechenbucht was operated in two stages until 1920 land reclamation. This was a prerequisite for the expansion of the fishing port. Because of its original charm, it enjoys great popularity with the guests. Here freshly caught fish is sold directly "from board".
