Heart beat – sensual & dreamy: a tour for romantics, refined minds and the love stoned. Lübeck is a romantic’s paradise: walking through the city’s winding alleyways, past high church spires and hidden courtyards, you’re sure to feel like you’re dreaming. And there are concealed nooks and crannies all around, just waiting to be discovered.
We start our tour on Breite Strasse at Niederegger , where sweet dreams have been coming true for more than 200 years. Enjoy the finest marzipan, delicate, creamy nougat, delicious cakes and yummy ice cream creations.
Stroll on to St. Mary’s church, where wonderful organ concerts are organised on a regular basis. Take your time to listen carefully to the powerful sounds of this venerable instrument before stepping outside to immerse yourself in the secret maze of alleys and courtyards nearby.
Have a look inside the Füchtingshof of or walk through the Glandorpsgang, and marvel at the old houses. If you sit down on a bench, you’ll forget all about the time…
But not for too long! There are many places nearby where you can get yourself dainty fashion, for example at Romeo & Julia in Hüxstrasse.
If you’re rather looking for something to decorate your home, go no further than Galleria Einrichtungen und Stoffkontor with its lovely home living accessories. Or what about Michaelsen, who have completely dedicated themselves to the Scandinavian lifestyle?
After this little Scandinavian excursion, it’s time for a break. At Café Calma the name says it all: calma of course means calm! You can relax in their cosy, isolated backyard and enjoy a tasty second breakfast.
Reinvigorated, you should now be ready to float into fairyland. Elfenreich is a unique shop featuring fashion that will shroud you in romance. You will find original designs for children as well as for ladies here.
The stunning flowers at Wilde Rose are just as inviting. This flower shop is second to none, displaying gorgeous bouquets standing among pieces of white antique furniture laid out on a sand strewn floor.
Now is a good time to visit Calida , where the Swiss label’s latest underwear collection awaits you.
A pretty postcard is part of every happy holiday, and at Papierhaus Groth you will find cards and letter sets which speak for themselves.
You can gain inspiration for writing poetic accounts of your trip on the other side of the Trave river at Malerwinkel – “the painters’ corner” – where Lübeck is prettier than Amsterdam, or in Blohms Gang , a picturesque backyard in the Old Town.
Or you can walk a little further to check out the impressive old Lübeck Cathedral, where the Middle Ages are within one’s reach.
The Alte Mühle is another throwback to the olden days – although the old rye mill now houses a restaurant. A short break in its original rooms or atop its summer garden terrace is a pure delight. We recommend that you try the homemade “Flammkuchen”, originally coming from the Elsass region – mmm, just delicious!
As dusk falls over the Old Town, you’re probably already looking forward to a romantic cinematic experience on one of the cosy sofas at Cinestar on Mühlenbrücke.
