Our guide, Axel Schattschneider, has really well-founded and comprehensive knowledge of the history, culture, architecture and social development of the city of Lübeck over the course of history. He imparts this knowledge in an understandable, vivid and entertaining way. He was a pleasure to listen to and there was never a dull moment throughout the tour. We learned a lot on this tour and got impressions of Lübeck that we would never have experienced otherwise. Axel was just great.

I had a lot of fun with my 14 and 16 year old daughters searching, tinkering, solving and enjoying background information. It's great that you can determine the pace and the breaks yourself. We only couldn't solve 1 puzzle, but that wasn't bad. Highly recommend it. A wonderful, beautiful, successful day !!!

Interesting tour with many stories about Lübeck and a city tour where you would never go alone! Thanks to our guide Thomas
