    Hi, I am heading off to stay in Ratzeburg for some months and want to hire some gear for a few weeks travel in January. Don't want to cart my suitcase when I will be moving around every day, so any info on whether you can hire a proper, good-sized rucksack would be useful.

  • Church concerts in Lübeck?

    by VikingCrown Online Now Oct 16, 2012 at 7:04 AM

    Hi fellows,

    I am planning to go to Lübeck for a weekend in either November or December (for the Christmas Market).

    While I am there I would like to attend a classical concert of some sort (preferable a certain Mozart mass). I had hoped to go to a church concert, but a regular venue will also do.

    Can anyone help me with the calendar of events for various church concerts (or other venues) in Lübeck?
    I can't seem to find much specific info on the net.

    This friday afternoon we will be arriving at Lubeck by car. We have booked a hotel in the historic center and they do have a parking lot, but we are questioning whether it is possible to drive all the way into the historic center a friday afternoon without beeing stuck for hours.

    Is it better to leave the car at the park and ride parkinglot and take the free shuttle to the center?

    Train to Hamburg

    by SwedeSarah Online Now Aug 15, 2009 at 2:42 AM

    I read somewhere that there are 2 seperate tariffs; DB Bahn's if you take a IC or EC train or SH's tariff if you use a local train. I want to take the local train. Is there a special ticket that I should ask for (so I don't get the fast train)? How much does the local train to Hamburg cost? Is there a special ticket where local transportation in Hamburg is included because I have to continue with bus to my final destination.

    I would really appreciate any help because I feel quite confused at the moment!

    Wild Camping Ostsee

    by phil219 Online Now May 15, 2008 at 1:30 PM

    Hi together,

    some friends of mine and me, all from Hamburg, would like to go to the Ostsee one weekend and camp there one night. Preferably at the beach and NOT at a camp site. Is this possbile in your opinion?

    We know that it is not allowed, but it would still be nice to do it anyways. In other parts of the world noone would care ALTOUGH it is not allowed. This might be different here in Germany I guess. We'd just sit around in the dunes with a keg or case of beer and get the tents up around 1 hour before sunset and take them down again early in the morning. Has anyone done this before? Anyone been caught?

    We'd come by train and/or bus from Hamburg. Any recommendation where exactly at the Ostsee it might not be so crowded and therefore possible to do this from Saturday to Sunday one weekend?

    If all of you are strictly recommending NOT to do it, tell me. And which camp site/ where would you recommend then instead?

    Regards and Danke in advance,

    Toy shop

    by Sjalen Online Now Jan 25, 2005 at 1:05 PM

    Here goes...our six-year-old is a Playmobil addict :))) I cannot blame her since I was the same when little as I grew up with German cousins. Their bigger stuff are sooo expensive in Sweden and the range not that good, so we try to buy when in Germany. However, there are no grand tours of Bavaria planned for now and my aunt in Wolfsburg who sometimes buys things on request to bring for holidays has no real toyshop in WOB, just WalMart etc. So, seeing as Lübeck is one of our nearest German cities and a world heritage at that, we thought we would make it a UNESCO Playmobil weekend sometime soon :) Can you lot just assure me that Lübeck has a typical German, i.e. good, toyshop? Something like Obletter in Bavarian cities...? Swedish and Danish toyshops are either just the same old boring Scando-nationals or specialised "wooden toy" shops. Help a six-year-old unite with her dream jet airplane with additional luggage van and security scan :)

    How to cool down in / near Luebeck?

    by tijs Online Now Aug 7, 2003 at 7:59 AM

    Next week we will make a cycle-tour in Germany starting in Buechen (near Luebeck) along the Alte Salzstrasse to Luebeck and then to the North along the Baltic Sea. According to the weather forecast, it will be pretty hot. Thats why we want to figure out what are the possibilities for swimming. In Holland many lakes and rivers are advised not to swim in these days, because of botulism (the water is too warm and toxic algues are growing). Does anyone know in what lakes and beaches the water is clean enough to swim in near Luebeck? Does anyone know if there are any nude beaches near Luebeck? Are there any campsites with a swimming pool or so? Thanks for any help!
