Lubeck Airport

Lubeck Airport is a small German international airport located just under 10 kilometers from the German city.
It is also known as Hamburg-Lübeck Airport, due to its proximity to Hamburg 8 (about 55 kilometers).

The airport boasts a centuries-old history and great strategic-military importance. During the Second World War, it was used as a base for carrying out attacks against the British. Later, it was used as a base of operations and training.

Despite being a secondary airport, it is in effect a gateway from the Baltic Sea to southern Germany and the rest of Europe. After experiencing ups and downs, Lübeck airport is back in operation after 2019 with direct connections to some European destinations.
Its modern terminal houses a bistro, a shopping store, a travel agency, some rental agencies and a restaurant with a panoramic terrace.
