Enjoy art, culture and shopping in the unique setting of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a huge variety of great shops, brands and small boutiques.

Fresh air, the peel of bells from the seven towers, typical Hanseatic merchant's houses - if you are looking to enrich your senses on a shopping spree, then Lübeck Old Town is the perfect place to be. Here, you can catch a glimpse of one of the enchanting social institutions on your way to the next boutique, enjoy a cup of marzipan-cappuccino on the market square in front of the historic Town Hall or breath in a healthy dollop of Lübeck architectural history when buying a postcard. The latest business idea can often be hidden behind the imposing Gothic brickwork. The experience of culture and shopping are inextricably linked on the historic Lübeck island. 

From summer coats, trekking shoes or a razor - the commercial world in Lübeck's town centre offers everything the heart desires. A day's shopping on the historic Lübeck island is a memorable experience, not only because of the well-known brand manufacturers, but mainly thanks to the long-established speciality stores and boutiques. Many traders understand that the Old Town is their entrepreneurial home and make visitors feel particularly welcome. They belong to the excellent "fable-tastics" who put in a special effort to ensure that the Lübeck Old Town remains as lively as it is today.
