Excursions around Stormarn

Stormarn is located in the middle of the metropolitan region of Hamburg and is therefore an ideal starting point for excursions to the varied region. The Hanseatic cities of Hamburg and Lübeck attract visitors with their numerous cultural attractions and can be reached within a very short time. But also the Lauenburg Lakes and the wide sandy beaches at the Baltic Sea offer numerous possibilities for an unforgettable excursion.


There are many reasons to visit Lübeck: winding alleyways and passages, old merchants’ houses and the seven towers of the historic town, built on an island and declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1987. The former hanseatic queen “Königin der Hanse” is an attractive destination for city tourists and promises lovers of culture, history and maritime life style true moments of happiness. Magnificent brick gothic churches, the unique museum landscape and the marzipan museum “Niederegger-Marzipansalon” are only a few of the many attractions that are well worth a visit. 

The newest cultural highlight is the European Hanseactic Museum, that takes you on an exciting timetravel through 600 years of hanseatic history. You will learn all about the old international economic trade association - about the valor of the merchants, the life abroad, about wealth, showing-off, pirates, illness and death. 

Secure inside the historic buildings, true museum gems can be found in this historic town. In addition to the museum St. Annen which gives you an insight of what life was like in the old Lübeck in their exhibition „Innere des Lübecker Weltkulturerbes“, the museum Behnhaus/Drägerhaus, the Heiligen-Geist-Hospital, where the Christmas craftfair takes place every year, as well as the theatre figures museum “TheaterFigurenMuseum am Kolk” are well worth a visit. Lübeck is particularly proud of its three Nobel Prize Laureates Thomas Mann, Willy Brandt and Günter Grass. The film festival “Nordische Filmtage Lübeck” is one of the most traditional film festivals worldwide. And every year, when the famous Christmas market takes place, the Hanseatic City is transformed into the “Christmas City of the North”. 

For those who would like to spend a day by the sea, the famous seaside town Travemünde is not far. With its giant ships, its fine Baltic Sea beaches, its Ferry Port, the biggest in Europe, and what is probably the most beautiful place for sailing worldwide, Travemünde is a popular day trip destination for visitors from near and far.
