Deutschland: Destination Different – Lubeck


#incentiveslubeck, #hamburg, #incentivesgermany, #teambuildinggermanyLubeck, a lovely river island medieval gem!

The entire Lubeck old city is deservedly a UNESCO Heritage Site.

In under one hour travel time from Hamburg, your delegate group can literally be transported back in time to visit the medieval gem that is Lubeck.

The old city is enclosed by the river Trave and this in turn connects to Ratzeburger Lake via the Wakenitz River. If you are holding a conference or incentive in Hamburg and looking for a team building day or incentive activity day Lubeck has a lot to offer.

A perfect city to explore in one day, from an early morning marzipan coffee to a myriad of hidden courtyards and alleyways (some just big enough to walk down) and 1,000 protected buildings. The city spans the middle-ages with Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical buildings; old merchant houses, churches, cathedral and more.

Old Lubeck is less than six kilometres square but it packs a historic punch that rivals many bigger cities.

So if you are looking for water based activities, either team building or just fun, what better backdrop could you want!

Perhaps you need a high energy competitive activity – Dragon Boat racing! Or, if more sedate is preferred, sail or canoe on the Ratzeburger Lake or sail down to the Baltic Sea.

Alternatively test your raft building skill on the Trave or your navigational skills in the alleys, courtyards and green spired churches of the old city.

Or be very different and hit the bullseye with night time archery!!

For lunch it would be a shame not to favour fish as the Baltic, lake and rivers offer such fresh fish. If fish is not on your menu why not time travel with a medieval banquet?
