Getting to and around Lübeck.


The easiest way to get to Lübeck is to fly to Hamburg International Airport and then take a train to Lübeck, of approx 1,5 – 2 hours travel, depending on your connection.

Lübeck has a smaller international airport (, but there are only flights to Munich, Stuttgart, Bern (Switzerland), Salzburg (Austria), Palma de Mallorca (Spain) and Heraklion on Crete (Greece), if you plan to have a warmup stay on a connecting flight…



There are train connections from several directions.

  • From Hamburg: Particularly practicle for all flying in through Hamburg International Airport. From Hamburg Airport there is a metro line going to Hamburg Central Station (25 min.). From there, regional trains commute in minimum hourly frequency to Lübeck Central Station (45 min.)
  • From Copenhagen and Mainland Denmark: There are several train connections to Hamburg. From Hamburg, take the train to Lübeck.
  • From the Baltic Countries: Connections via Hamburg are best

Lübeck is perfectly connected to the German Autobahn (Highway) network, if you prefer to travel by car.



There are several ferry connections to and from Lübeck Travemünde Ferryport connecting Helsinki (Finnlines), Klaipeda (TT Line), Liepaja (Stena Line), Malmö (Finnlines), and Trelleborg (TT Line).

Travemünde, the Baltic port and official district of Lübeck is approx 30 minutes car ride from downtown Lübeck.

Plus, there are several ferry connections from further Nordic and Baltic cities to the ferry ports of Kiel and Rostock, which are both roughly a 1-hour-car-ride to Lübeck
