What to expect

Get to the bottom of the stories and rumors about the Hanseatic League on this walking tour in Lübeck with a private guide!

"Hansa Teutonica" or "Düdesche Hanse" was the name of the association of north German merchants who were supposed to secure ship crossings and trade. Between the 12th and 17th centuries, the Hanseatic League developed from a merchant to a city connection, which included around 300 sea and even inland cities in Northern Europe from Riga to Bruges at the time of this union. The birth of the Hanseatic League is closely related to the founding of the city of Lübeck in 1143.

The tour starts at the historic Holstentor, one of 4 city fortification gates. You walk with your guide past the "Salz- und Travehafen" and through the Große Petersgrube, one of the most pristine streets in Lübeck with beautiful old brick and stepped gable buildings. Later, on the town hall market, you will get to know the centuries-old center of the old merchant town: the town hall with the war room and behind it the Niederegger “Marzipan House”. Passing the Ratskirche St. Marien and the Buddenbrookhaus of the Mann family, you will come to the venerable Schiffergesellschaft, where the sailors from the Hanseatic League stayed, and to the Heilig-Geist-Spital, which the merchants maintained from their wealth as a welfare institution. In the end, you get a look into the romantic courtyards and corridors, the living areas of the Hanseatic era.
