  • View the city from St Petri's Church...

    Lübeck Things to Do

    There is a viewing stage ( access by lift - I think I'd have preferred stairs) to a high vantage point from where you get great views all over the city of Lübeck. There is a small charge to go up but that probably helps to maintain the church. Student rates apply.Look out for the model of the church - see photo.

    One of the most fascinating aspects of the Northsea as it is encountered in Büsum, are the tides. When the tide is low you can go very far out, and if it was not for the dugout sailingpassage you could go on for several kilometers. Going out for a stroll on this sand is a pleasent experience, and you can find lots of crabs and seashells.

    by pieter_jan_v Written Jun 7, 2014

    Eckernförde is ideal for taking a sail trip. The village is located at the Baltic Sea, but the first waters known as the Eckernförder Bucht, are shielded by the land to the North and South, which make it great for boating.
    Besides that, the North land side is the best sunny spot for getting a tan.
