In December last year I went to Lübeck, Germany mainly to see their gorgeous Christmas market. It turns out though that Lübeck is also a very pretty city outside its market, which I’d like to introduce you to below.

The city has a few Tors (gates) around the old city. I entered from the north.

From there I went east to explore the habitual areas, cobbled streets with beautiful coloured houses.

From the this part of the city I made my way towards the Marienkirche, which lies more or less in the middle of it all.

Absolutely gorgeous if you ask me. While I was there the organist started practising, which didn’t lessen the experience in any way.

From there I made my way down past the Holsteintor..

And from there on a walk down south along the river, from where there are good views of the Dom zu Lübeck.

Finally I went back to the Petrikirche because I wanted to see the city from its tower. I couldn’t see far in the murky weather, but I still saw some churches and the Christmas market from above.

In the evening I went to a place called Brauberger, where I got a homebrewed beer and a delicious and very large portion of Jäger Art Wienerschnitzel.

Lübeck might actually have looked prettier in the evening with all the grey weather in the day..

Definitely liked staying in Lübeck for a short while. Wouldn’t mind returning in the summer to walk along the river in warmer temperatures.. Have you been to Lübeck? How did you like it? Comment below.
