Lübeck Tourist Information

From: Lübeck, Germany

Lübeck Welcome Center

Lübeck-Travemünde Tourismus is the city's official tourist office. (It also handles tourism duties for Travemünde, a beach resort and ferry port on the Baltic seacoast, which Lübeck's city fathers had the good sense to purchase nearly 700 years ago.)

The tourist office's Lübeck Welcome Center is on the right side of Holstentorplatz, just before the Holstentor gate as you approach the Altstadt. Stop in to get brochures, purchase guidebooks and maps, book a room, or get directions. The Welcome Center also has a small café.
