Our guide, Axel Schattschneider, has really well-founded and comprehensive knowledge of the history, culture, architecture and social development of the city of Lübeck over the course of history. He imparts this knowledge in an understandable, vivid and entertaining way. He was a pleasure to listen to and there was never a dull moment throughout the tour. We learned a lot on this tour and got impressions of Lübeck that we would never have experienced otherwise. Axel was just great.

Interesting tour with many stories about Lübeck and a city tour where you would never go alone! Thanks to our guide Thomas
