Arriving and departing
Lübeck-Blankensee Airport (LBC) is 8 km or 5 miles from the city center. It's served by Ryanair flights from London, Glasgow, Shannon, Stockholm, Milan, and Pisa. Wizzair offers flights from Gdansk, Poland. (To reach the city from the airport, take the no. 6 bus, which runs at 20-minute intervals and takes 30 minutes to reach Lübeck's main railroad station.)
TT-Line (from Trelleborg), Nordö Link (Malmö), Finnlines (Helsinki and St. Petersburg), and DFDS Lisco (Riga). Other possibilities include ferries to Kiel and Rostock, which have good connections to Lübeck by train or highway.Lübeck and its neighboring beach resort of Travemünde are served by

Most of Lübeck's tourist attractions are in the historic Altstadt, which is easily navigated on foot. You might need a taxi to reach your hotel if it's a good distance from the railroad station, but otherwise you probably won't need to worry about local transportation unless you head for the beach in Travemünde, which is easy to reach by Stadtverkehr Lübeck city bus.
If you're interested in reaching Travemünde by boat, Könemann Schiffahrt will transport you there from April through mid-October. I'd suggest taking the morning boat and returning late in the afternoon, or--better yet--spending the night in Travemünde and coming back to Lübeck the next day.
Lübeck has more than a dozen parking facilities (including garages) around or within the Innenstadt. Look for blue "P" signs as you approach the inner city.
