    Day 274: Lübeck Day-Trip

    November 15, 2017 in Germany

    Out of Hamburg today, exploring other nearby cities. First up on our list was the city of Lübeck, a World Heritage site of course! Caught the train north-east out of town for about an hour, and arrived in the centre of Lübeck. This city was historically very important to the Hanseatic League, a trading league from the middle ages and early Renaissance that was very important to the Baltic and North Seas.

    We walked over into the centre of town and set to exploring. First impressive stop was the heavily fortified gate, complete with a serious lean! Apparently the original city gate was much larger, this still-impressive remainder is just the inner-most of three gates.

    Nearby were some old warehouses, where goods (mostly salt) were stored before being shipped in or out. The buildings are all red brick and done in a Gothic style which looks very characteristic - reminiscent of Bruges.

    Crossing the river into the old town, we headed next for the town hall which looked great, but sadly was difficult to film as they were setting up for the Christmas markets in the square fronting it. Managed to do a bit to camera but it's not going to be a classic highlight I don't think!

    Checked out the last few sights here, including an enormous brick Gothic cathedral - the largest in the world - and a very early hospital as well, dating from the 13th century. Grabbed a quick lunch of currywurst (sausage with curry sauce and fries), then spent another hour or so just looking around. Nice little city!

    Back to the station by early afternoon where we got the train back to Hamburg, and home by around 3pm. Settled in for the evening, only venturing out later to grab kebabs for dinner!

    Absolutely historical !

    June 1, 2017 in Germany

    Der heutige Tag hatte echt etwas geschichtsträchtiges! (Sagt man das so?🙄)
    Angefangen von mühsamen Radwegen, die alle paar Meter von Wurzeln der entlang des Weges gepflanzten Bäume aufgerissen waren, über eine mühsame Durchquerung von Hamburg (25 km!!) bis hin zur eigentlichen Belohnung für all die Strapazen = das historische Lübeck ‼️👍
    Ich war erst ca. 1 Stunde in der Altstadt und werde den ganzen morgigen Tag hier verbringen! (Pläne sind auch mal dazu da, um abgeändert, sprich angepasst zu werden! 😉
    Heute war wirklich nicht mein Tag, trotzdem endete er perfekt!!!

    A perfect recovery day

    June 2, 2017 in Germany

    Just another 🌞 day‼️
    Nach einem sehr ausgedehnten Zmorge gehe ich meine Wäsche in einem Waschsalon waschen. Die Wartezeit verkürze ich mit dem Besuch beim Coiffeur! (Aerodynamisch für morgen 😉)
    Danach gönne ich mir eine Massage und fühle mich wie neugeboren! 👍
    Die anschliessende 1- stündige Kanalfahrt rund um den historischen Kern von Lübeck ist so eindrücklich, dass ich danach grosse Teile davon zu Fuss erkunde!
    Historische Anmerkung: In Lübeck gibt es noch immer über 80 Hauseingänge in die Höfe, die zur Zeit ihrer Erstellung die Auflage erfüllen mussten, dass sie mindestens so breit sein mussten, damit man mit einem SARG durchkommt! (Bild 2)
    Ds heute ja kein cycling day war, schloss ich den Tag nur mit 5 Gummibärli anstatt mit einem grossen Dessert ab!😢

    Travemunde, Germany

    June 12 in Germany

    Went on my first tour today in a very long time. The tour went to Lübeck an historic town on an island near Travemunde. The awkward part of the tour was when they started talking about how the British bombed them during world war 2 and destroyed part of the city and showed the damage caused by it. Showing a massive book listing all the names of people who died.
    The city was nice but the tour was not very exciting. You have to be more interested in the history of Lübeck to enjoy the tour. They did give us free coffee/tea and a nut marzipan cake but I’m not a fan of marzipan either.
    The great part of it though was that it was an assigned tour for work so I get to start late and finish early tonight.
