Travelanni Times




Lübeck is a very historical and interesting town which was badly bombed

during the war. It has a mixture of well restored medieval buildings and

modern post-war architecture, some lovely churches and great museums.

The journey from Rostock Main Station takes just under two hours and

requires one change of train. there is a train every two hours.

From the main station turn right into Konrad-Audenauer Strasse, across

the park and over the bridge to the Holstentor, the most important city

gate and now a museum.   Walk up Holstenstrasse, there are some good

photo opportunities in the lovely little side streets, to the City Centre. 

The main attractions are the Market Place, St Marien Church and the

Rathaus;  in Koenigstrasse St Katherines Museum and the Heiligen-Geist

Hospital; further along Gross Burgstrasse is the Burgtor, second most

important city gate and the Burgkloster, another great museum.

From there you can, if you wish,  catch a 12 or 34 bus back to the train

station or walk along the waterfront which runs parallel to the city wall all

the way back to the Puppenbruecke.

There is a lot of information and a very good map on the tourism web

site (enlarged to 150% it is very clear)
