The beautiful Hanseatic town has a rather small and concentrated center. Precisely for this reason, the best way to get around Lübeck is on foot. Alternatively, we recommend using a bicycle. Here, the two-wheeled vehicle is quite common.

Here, as in most of Germany, we focus a lot on the ecological aspect. There are many cycle paths. Furthermore, it is quite simple to rent a two-wheeler in the city.

Move to Lübeck


The lines available are not so many. Moreover, the tickets are quite expensive, compared to the rest of Germany. The road line is operated by Lübeck Travemünder Verkehrsgesellschaft - Stadtvekehr Lübeck. The service is generally active every day from 05: 30 in the morning to 22: 00. Some main lines, such as the 1 line, run until around midnight, from Monday to Sunday. There is no night service. On weekends, it should be emphasized that the frequencies of the races are quite high. For all info, lines and timetables, it is available the official website through this link.

We recommend using the bus to reach the most distant areas from the center and the neighboring towns, integrated into the tariff system.


In our opinion, the taxi is really an excellent solution, if not even better than the bus. Especially if you were two or more people. It should also be noted that since there is no overnight public service, the taxi is the only solution to move to Lübeck after midnight. Taxi drivers have a good reputation, however, we always recommend that you check the fare before using this vehicle.


Lübeck is part of the integrated tariff system of Schleswig-Holstein and Greater Hamburg area (Ring A + B). Tickets differ depending on the fare zone. To move to Lübeck center, and in the suburbs, a ticket for just one area is sufficient.

The ticket for a bus trip costs 1,80 € for adults and children over the age of 14. Reduced for children from 6 to 14 years, costs 1,10 €. The day ticket costs 5,20 € instead. It allows unlimited movements on buses during the day.
