Debark your ship in Kiel and be greeted by your local, friendly English-speaking guide who will show you to your private vehicle and settle in for a comfortable drive to Lübeck.
Once you arrive, you will be provided a 2-hour tour of the city with your private guide that includes the iconic Holsten Gate, the old salt storehouses, St. Peter's Church, the imposing town hall overlooking the city's marketplace, St. Mary's Church (the "mother of brick Gothic architecture") and much more.
This northern German city is immediately distinguished by Brick Gothic architecture which dates to its time as the medieval capital of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trading confederation. Its symbol is the Holstentor, a red-brick city gate that defended the river-bounded Altstadt (old town). Rebuilt following WW II, the Marienkirche is a 13th-14th-century landmark that widely influenced Northern European church design.
Once your organized time has ended, you will be given approximately 1-1.5 hours of free time to continue exploring the old city's winding alleys on your own before returning to the port of Kiel.
This private tour offer can be customized to suit your requests to visit the sites that interest you.
