Hüxstraße and Fleischhauerstraße in the heart of the city provide an enchanting mix of small and up-market shops with a great deal of Olde Worlde charm.
By turning into the so-called "rib streets" away from the hustle and bustle of Breite Straße, you will enter into the narrow brick world of old Lübeck and will find many treasures within the winding lanes. Fleischhauerstraße and "Hüx" - as it is called by the locals - are two good examples of how an extremely vibrant shopping culture all of its own can develop away from the classic boulevards. The traders are often in listed buildings and know exactly how to use the limited space to display their wares without losing the historical atmosphere.
There is a higher-than-average number of owner-run shops which means that many purchases earn the "typically Lübeck" title which makes them a great gift for yourself or your loved ones.
