July 11, 2019
The city of Lübeck is surrounded by the Trave and the Elbe-Lübeck Canal like an island. While in the center the shopping streets are animated by residents and guests, you will find a beautiful, natural walking route all around - in the middle of the city.Let's start the seven-kilometer tour at the train station in Lübeck. From there you cross the moat and walk to the famous Holstentor - the landmark of the Hanseatic city. You see the Trave flowing in front of you, cross the bridge and continue walking in the direction of the river.You follow the riverbank, make a detour to the cathedral and walk past the mill pond. If you hit the riverbank again, you're standing on the Elbe-Lübeck-Canal. It represents a connection for inland navigation between the Elbe and the Baltic Sea. Passing the Kaisertor and over the Prahlswall, you continue along the canal bank and enjoy the idyllic waterfront to the fullest.After just under five kilometers you reach the castle gate and shortly thereafter again the well-known Trave. You continue on the Untertrave, cross a bridge again and shortly before the end of the tour you pass the museum harbor. Before you go back to the station, it is worth a detour to the city center. If only to snack on some marzipan.Arrival and departure: After Lübeck you come by train from Hamburg, Kiel, Lüneburg or Puttgarden.
