Living on the waterfront
Lübeck is inseparable from water. The Old Town Island, enclosed by rivers and canals, today still conveys the charisma and cosmopolitan flair of a port city. The city port and also Europe's largest ferry port in Lübeck-Travemünde pay testimony to the fact that time has not stood still.
In Lübeck, there is no contradiction between tradition and progress; instead they form the exciting arch that makes this city unique. Medieval ambience and modern shops, organ concerts in the five major churches in the city and musical events in the Music and Concert Hall: everything is tightly packed in Lübeck.
