Lubeck. How to arrive by plane from Hamburg. Get in by train, car, ferry


Between rotspon and marzipan, in the city of Thomas Mann.

Wonderful town, whose historic center, surrounded by the river Trave and the seven characteristic Towers, has been declared a UNESCO cultural heritage as a prototype of a western city of the twelfth century …

The Hanseatic League and the Middle Ages, Thomas Mann, marzipan in all imaginable forms. Or, again, the French wine aged in local cellars, the Holstentor and the Gothic Petrikirche.

These are just some of the many aspects for which it is worth visiting this pearl of the Land. So, don’t miss a weekend here, and let yourself be transported to this magical place.




The international airport is fully operational again in 2020. Direct connections, however, are limited in number and, precisely for this reason, the nearby Hamburg airport could be an excellent solution to reach the German city.

Hamburg Airport, one of the largest in the country, is approximately 70 kilometers away. From here, you can easily reach Lübeck by car or train.

Right in front of the Terminal, there is the S-Bahn stop which in about 20 minutes leads to Hamburg Hbf, or Hamburg Central Station. From here, you can reach Lübeck by train in about 40 minutes. Tickets can be purchased directly at the vending machines. The price starts from 15€ per person. More information can be found on the DB-BAHN website.


Lübeck-HBF is the central railway station that serves the city. With passenger traffic estimated at around 35,000, it is the busiest hub in Schleswig-Holstein. The station is housed in a historic building from 1908.

Numerous national and international InterCity lines connect the city to Copenhagen, Hamburg and Berlin. From here, ICE and EUROCITY depart frequently. Regional lines connect numerous destinations throughout Germany. More information on the official website of the German railways. The German railway system works flawlessly.


The German road and motorway system is particularly efficient. The limit on the motorway, if not indicated, is 130 km/h. But what is incredible for us is that the Autobahn is totally free (toll only for some heavy truck categories). The city can be reached from Hamburg via the A1; from Berlin, A24 to Talkau and then B207; from Frankfurt or Hanover, A7 to Hamburg and then A1.


Getting to Lübeck after a crossing is not the best. The ferry remains, however, unquestionably a means that can fascinate.
From Sweden, TT-LINE offers connections to the city.
From Finland, there is GTS FINNJET and from Denmark, Vogelflugline DB / DSB.
