Lübeck city


Lübeck in Germany is somewhere I’ve been before. We came for a family holiday as a gift to my dad, who was stationed here during his time in the RAF. It was just after the war, when the Berlin air lift was in full swing. He was a mechanic working on the aircraft here.

When I saw on the map how close my route would take me, I had to stop off. Lübeck is a historic town with some of the buildings dating back to the 1600s. On a sunny day it’s lovely, with just the right amount of tourist support.

By that I mean that the city functions in its own right without tourists, it’s not packed with loud Americans or Chinese tour buses. However, you can get English menus, reasonably priced meals on the riverfront and all the usual trinkets to remember the place. I’d say they’ve got the balance perfect.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
