Lübeck: Where to stay

From: Lübeck, Germany


ABOVE: The CVJM or YMCA youth hostel is in Lübeck's historic old town, as is the Klassik Altstadt Hotel (shown below).


Lübeck and its beach resort of Travemünde rack up more than a million hotel nights per year, so book ahead when you come to visit--especially during summer, special events, or the Christmas season.

photoDuring our stay, we had a large, comfortable, and pleasantly old-fashioned room at the TOP CityLine Klassik Altstadt Hotel in the town center. The 40-bed hotel occupies a converted mansion on Fischergrube, about a 15-minute walk from the railroad station and within a few blocks of Lübeck's most important churches, museums, and shopping.

We also inspected the Hotel Excelsior, a very comfortable three-star hotel midway between the railroad station and the Altstadt. The Excelsior is a good choice if you have heavy luggage or an early train departure. Guestrooms range from singles to quads, plus a three-bedroom apartment for large families or small groups.

The four-star Radisson Blu Senator Hotel is handy for guests with cars. The 224-room hotel faces the harbor and the old town from its waterside location just west of the Holstentor. The hotel has a pool, pets are welcome, and parking is available for a daily fee.
