Tolle Möglichkeit, die Stadt aus einem anderen Blickwinkel zu sehen. Die Tour ist sehr informativ mit interessanten Informationen rund um die Stadt. Der Kapitän bringt die Infos sehr lebendig auf norddeutsche Art rüber. Sehr zu empfehlen. Würden wir immer wieder machen.

Hyggelig tur med familien, vi vil helt sikkert gøre det næste gang vi kommer til Lübeck. Personalet var flinke og imødekommende. Vi havde booket en tur, men fik lov til at komme på en tidligere. Vi var ikke opmærksomme på, at man kun kunne betale for drikkevarer kontant. Det var ærgerligt, for det ville have været endnu bedre hvis man samtidigt kunnet have nydt en øl/sodavand. Jeg ville have ønsket at man allerede ved booking, også bestiller og betaler drikkevarer til turen.

Tatsächlich erhält die urlaubende Person einen wunderbaren Ein- und Ausblick auf das nordisch charmante Lübeck. Und wenn man denkt, jetzt kommt wieder ein neues, schickes Wohnhaus oder eine alte Scheune, dann entdeckt man noch die sehenswürdige Obertrave mit schmucken Häuschen und dem weltberühmten Holstentor!
