Recreation & Culture
Lübecks´sandy beaches on the Baltic Sea, only a few minutes away from Lübeck’s city centre, attract a lot of people every year. Many use this opportunity to also visit the historic town of Lübeck with its listed buildings and picturesque alleyways. They are fascinated by the hanseatic town, which in 1987 was declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.
Above all, Lübeck is a town surrounded by water. The old town island is enclosed by the rivers Trave, Wakenitz and the Canal. Lübeck´s bay is only a few minutes away and is known as one of the most beautiful places for sailing and recreational swimming at the Baltic Sea. Anyone who likes to stay active can choose from more than 100 sport clubs or jog along the Elbe-Lübeck canal or Wakenitz river while at the same time enjoying a scenic view of Lübeck´s old town.
A lively cultural scene makes Lübeck an exciting place for art and music lovers to visit. The Municipal Theatre of Lübeck is considered an insider tip by experts for its pronounced high standard. The Music and Congress Hall of Lübeck attracts superstars from all over the world. The College of Music enriches Lübeck´s music life in many ways through its internationally recognised education program and its reputation. In addition, there are various museums with frequent special exhibitions.
In Lübeck work and leisure can be combined in such a way to achieve a unique work-life balance.
